Since its maiden voyage in 2010, the Park Hill 4th of July Parade has transformed from a laid-back neighborhood celebration to, well, a really big laid-back neighborhood celebration, This year more than 800 riders, floaters, dancers, horseback riders, musicians, dancers and other various (and surprise) merrymakers are gearing up to delight the throngs of thousands on Thursday, July 4. Bring your lawn chairs, blankets and a picnic, set up along the route, and expect to be wowed.
This year’s Independence Day parade is from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., and runs along 23rd Avenue from Dexter to Krameria streets. The parade culminates with a street fair on the 2200 block of Kearney. Check out additional details at www.parkhillparade.org. Photo by Reid Neureiter
