The Memorial Villages' Independence Day Car/Bicycle Parade will take place on Mon., July 4 at 10 a.m. The patriotic parade will travel down Piney Point Road. In light of the Covid pandemic, there will not be a gathering after the parade.
Come out and wave the flag, cheer our Police and Fire Personnel, and celebrate our Great Nation. There is also an open, non-timed “Fun Run” and children’s bike ride to kick off the parade. Meet up at the Memorial High field house parking lot at 9:45 a.m. Runners will go first. The run is a true Fun Run - no timers, no categories, no pressure. The run will go down Piney Point and end near Ecclesia Church. Runners will need to have their own transportation back to the start. Shortly after the runners leave, there will be a Children’s Bike Ride. Riders of all ages are encouraged to decorate their bikes and ride the parade route. The vehicle parade starts at 10 a.m. Residents who wish to join in are encouraged to decorate their vehicles following a Red, White and Blue theme. The parade will be led by the Village Fire Department, followed by Village Officials, Resident Vehicles and followed up by our Police Departments. The old-fashioned 4th of July celebration is a joint effort of the six Memorial Villages and is free to all attendees. The parade will end in front of St. Francis/Ecclesia Church.
If you will be joining in the parade and decorating a vehicle, please register in advance so we know how big the parade will be. Please send your name and phone number to Tom Fullen at [email protected] Limit of 1 vehicle per registration.
