Riding the success of last year's Fourth of July Citizens Parade, the City of Milton will continue the new tradition this year. All Milton residents are welcome to decorate bikes, wagons and pets and come help the city celebrate the nation's birthday.
"We had such an incredible turnout last year that we just had to host the event a second time," said Project Coordinator Linda Blow, who came up with the idea of citizens participating last year. "We are determined to make it bigger and better than it was in 2008."
The parade route begins at the corner of Deerfield Parkway and Webb Bridge Road at 10 a.m. Saturday, July 4, and proceeds along Deerfield. Participants are asked to assemble at Milton City Hall, 13000 Deerfield Parkway, at 9:30 a.m. After the parade, come back to City Hall to enjoy balloon animals and face painting. Local Girl Scouts will be selling beverages and Milton's new Philly Pretzel Factory will be selling pretzels.
