Get ready to decorate those bicycles, scooters and strollers for the 18th annual Westover Hills Neighborhood Fourth of July Children’s Parade on Thursday, July 4th at 10:00 am. Wear your red, white and blue, both people and pets! The parade will begin at the intersection of Peterborough and Sylvan Road and conclude at 5021 Sylvan Road, where you can socialize with neighbors and have that Fourth of July snow cone before you continue on to other celebrations. This simple, fun, festive neighborhood tradition continues; be a part of it! Children love to have neighbors come out to line the streets and cheer them on!
Volunteers are needed to help set up road blocks, help with snow cones and popcorn, and by 11:30 am, move the barricades to locations to close off Riverside Drive for the Fourth of July fireworks. Please contact Laura Dysart at firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer.
