Parade Route: The parade will roll at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, July 4th, and head east on Mill Street. It will turn on to Bilbo and head south down Bilbo Street to Kirby Street. It will turn onto Kirby Street and head west to Lakeshore Drive. The parade will roll north down Lakeshore Drive back to Mill Street.
Anyone who would like to join in the parade is invited to decorate their floats, vehicles, golf carts, bicycles, marching units, etc. Denise Fasske, event manager said, “This route is the perfect distance for kids to participate by decorating their bikes and wagons and filing in line.” Spectators are encouraged to line the streets for beads and candy.
