I asked my kids today if they remembered the Fourth of July parade from last year. Their eyes lit up like saucers as they screeched, "Is that the one where they throw the candy?!?" Actually, it is, but never mind all of those people, the picnics, the flags, face-painting, friends and the roar of a military flyover!
Here's the low-down for Weds of next week:
11:30am- Children's Walking Parade starts at Market/Central (meet at Marina Park)
Noonish- Military flyover kicks off the Grand Downtown Parade
1:30-6- rotary Olde Fashioned Community Picnic at Juanita Beach Park
10pm-Fireworks display at Marina Park!
Parking is a bugger, so start your voyage early. Penny Sweet is still looking for lots of volunteers to make the day a huge success, so let her know if you'd like to be part of the community that pulls this event together (firstname.lastname@example.org ) More info: www.celebratekirkland.org or 425-822-0284.
