July 4th Parade and Picnic A Great Tradition Continues!

Come be a part of the fun on Thursday, July 4, for our annual parade and picnic.

July 4 Lyon Village Park

Parade 11 am
The parade will begin promptly at 11:00am at the corner of Key Blvd. and Highland St. Line up on 17th St., just off of Highland Street starting at 10:30am. The parade will travel east on Key Blvd. to Edgewood St., where it will turn left to continue along Edgewood St. to the Lyon Village Park.

Included in the parade will be antique cars, and police and fire vehicles. As usual, the antique cars and fire trucks will remain after the parade so everyone can get a closer look. If you would like to drive your antique car in the parade, please email John Carten at

Following the parade, we will gather in the park for a picnic. We ask that you bring a dish to share or your own picnic and beverages. We will provide water. Due to fewer volunteers, we are modifying the format this year to make it less labor intensive. This does not mean, however, that we will have any less fun; it just requires folks to plan ahead and bring along a dish to share or your own picnic. You can drop off a dish to share ahead of the parade at the Park.

Volunteers Needed
To volunteer to help with the picnic, kids games or clean-up, please email Tom Harrison at or Tony Abreu at

Bike Thefts

Recently there have been some bicycle thefts in the
 Clarendon area. Protect your bike from theft. U-locks
 are the most effective locks to use. When leaving your 
bike in a public area always secure the bike to a bike
rack or other immovable object even if just for a 
short time. When at home, secure your bike in
 a safe location such as a locked garage or other inside 

Register your bike with the police

Washington Blvd-Kirkwood Rd Building Approved
