Special parade just for children


The Fourth of July children’s parade, sponsored by the Veterans of Foreign Wars, is planned again as part of holiday activities.  

The parade will take place at Marktplatz, beginning at 8:30 a.m. Wednesday, July 4, and no sign-up is required for those looking to participate. All children under 12 are welcome to participate.

Children are allowed to bring their decorated pets, bikes, wagons and scooters to the event.

Participants can enter into various categories to win prizes.

Categories include: “Uncle Sam,” “Miss Liberty,” “Best Bike Boy,” “Best Bike Girl,” “Best Dressed Pet,” “Best Group” and more.

Winners will receive a $10 Walmart gift card. Other participants will receive a small prize just for being a part of the celebration.
