West University residents dressed in red, white and blue gathered together for the annual neighborhood July Fourth parade and celebration. A firetruck led the crowd as kids rode their decorated bikes and scooters down University Blvd.

The fun went on with a pool party at Colonial Park Pool, complete with music, picnicking, face painting, balloon animals and games for people of all ages.
