July 4 Parade and BYO Picnic

Come be a part of the fun on Wednesday, July 4, for our annual parade and picnic. The parade will begin promptly at 11:00am at the corner of Key Blvd. and Highland St. Line up on 17th St. N., just off of Highland St. starting at 10:30 am. Included in the parade will be antique cars, and police and fire vehicles. If you would like to drive your antique car in the parade, please email John Carten at GJCarten at verizon dot net. 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.

Following the parade, we will gather in the park for a picnic. However this year, we are asking folks to bring their own picnic lunches and beverages. Due to fewer volunteers in recent years, 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 bag or basket of goodies to share with their group. As usual, the antique cars and fire trucks will remain after the parade so everyone can get a closer look. To volunteer to help with the picnic, activities or clean-up, please email Tony Abreu at Tony.Abreu at gmail dot com.
