Milton Hosts 2nd Annual Fourth of July Citizens Parade

The whole community is invited to join the event!

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.

Enloe's June employee of the month, Linda Blow, has difficulty with street identification. Her 2009 notice, just like her original 2008 notice, indicates parade route will begin at Webb Bridge Rd and Deerfield Pkwy.

Why would the parade route begin in Alpharetta or as Roswell people used to say, Alphatater ?

CORRECTION, I should have stated PERSON of the month rather than EMPLOYEE of the month. Sorry about that.

I think she meant Webb Road

You would think public notices/announcements are proofed for errors/omissions, so that our government workers look like they know what they are doing

Isn't Obama cancelling the 4th of July now?

Yes, but it is o.k. to hold it because the enforcers will go to Webb Bridge & Deerfield and there will not be a parade at that location.
