Spirited youngsters are invited to enter the annual Freedom Fest Children’s Parade, scheduled at 11 a.m. on Monday, July 4th, at Yukon City Park, 2200 S. Holly. This dynamic event is coordinated by the friendly Mabel C. Public Library staff and energetic volunteers. Participation is FREE!
The parade course begins at City Splash Pavilion and circles around the sand volleyball court and pavilion. Advance registration is now open at the library, 1200 Lakeshore Drive. Registration forms are available at the library or at the link above. Parade categories include ages four and under, ages five to eight, ages nine through 12, and groups.
Participants should arrive by 10:45 a.m. for check-in and staging. Entrants line up, and the parade begins promptly at 11:00 a.m. The library staff lead the parade in playful costumes inspired by this Summer’s reading program: Oceans of Possibilities.
Parking is available at Freedom Trail Playground or the Yukon Community Center.
Children are encouraged to wear patriotic costumes and boldly decorate their bikes, tricycles, wagons, pets or floats with a patriotic or other theme. No gasoline powered All-Terrain Vehicles (ATVs), please. An inspired description of the child’s parade entry is requested, which is read aloud as each child passes the judge’s stand.
All participants receive a goodie bag, and the top three entries in each category receive an additional award!
