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 GJCarten@verizon.net.

Picnic
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 Tom1@outlook.com or Tony Abreu at Tony.Abreu@gmail.com.
