With unseasonably warm temperatures this spring, many folks are already thinking summer and that means the Fourth of July! It’s not too early to make plans now to celebrate Independence Day by entering a float, marching unit or organization in Liberty’s 3rd annual Liberty4thFest parade.
There will be three divisions of entries for this year’s parade:
-FLOATS DIVISION: Entries must be handmade, traditional floats that celebrate patriotism and liberty.
-OPEN DIVISION: Youth Groups, Elected Officials, Political Candidates, Scouts, Dance Troupes, Cars, Motorcycle Clubs, Neighborhood Groups, Home Owners Associations, Pom Pon Squads, Cheerleading Squads, etc.
-MARCHING UNITS: Bands, Military Units, Drill Teams, Horses and Riders, Mules and Carriages
All entries should be of a patriotic nature. Ribbons will be awarded to the top parade entries. Awards will be presented at the corner of Kansas and Water streets in conjunction with the announcement of BBQ contest winners at 4 p.m.
Parade entry information is available online at www.Liberty4thFest.com, or at Liberty City Hall, 101 E. Kansas. Deadline for entries is June 22, 2012.
