Every year the RCNA organizes a neighborhood parade on the morning of July 4th to give everyone the opportunity to show their red, white and blue! We have bicycles, we have wagons, we have strollers, we have pets - and of course we have ourselves - decked out with the good ole U S of A!
Along with all that, we have a police escort to block off traffic, and we have a Jollyville Fire Department Fire Engine leading the parade charge - at a very slow pace!
We start congregating along Tamayo near the Rattan Park playground and soccer fields around 8:45 am, and try to get the parade kicked off at 9:15 AM.
After the parade, the fire department hangs out for a while and lets people check out their fire engine. We will have FREE popsicles provided by local troop, along with an small award ceremony for those best dressed bikes. The good folks at the RCNA man our table and meet and greet anyone who'd like to chat! We also may have water and plastic cups available since July can get pretty hot - even at 9am.
We hope you can make it to show your patriotic pride and start your next Fourth of July celebration with us!
