Starting at 9:30 am, we’ll gather at Pillow Elementary. At 9:50, we’ll begin to line up for the parade, which starts at 10 am.
The parade will start in front of Pillow Elementary and circle the block around the school. Anyone can participate — on foot, on bicycle, and we usually have some small children in strollers or wagons. Of course, spectators are also important, so if you’re not up for the walk (or ride), we hope you’ll cheer on our parade from the sidewalks around the route.
After the parade, we’ll return to Pillow to enjoy games, face painting, snow cones, balloon twisting and some special Independence Day surprises.
We’ll also give out prizes for the best-decorated parade “vehicles,” and best costumes for humans and pets, so dig up your best red, white and blue couture for the event. We plan to wrap up around 11:30 am.
