Get excited for the Fourth of July weekend by revisiting some of these photos from past parades. Our neighborhood will soon be filled with face paint, balloon animals and puppies.

As you prepare food, pack coolers and paint faces red, white and blue, stay safe and mind the hot weather. And remember, the 2019 celebration, hosted by the Hillcrest Forest Homeowners Association, begins at 9:30 a.m. The itinerary promises balloon artists, face painters, convertibles and vintage cars. There will also be plenty of kids on decorated bikes. The main event is the best dressed dog competition, so make sure your pooch is proudly sporting red, white and blue. The parade will  meet at Kramer Elementary School 7131 Midbury Drive.  Have a great weekend everybody!
