Our Fourth of July Parade has been a cherished tradition for decades, and this year will not disappoint. Our theme is “Let Freedom (B)ring – Celebrating America’s and Our Community’s Generosity.” Visit our website and register your booth or walking entry. We are especially looking for communities with floats! Get your neighbors together and have some fun in the parade.
