We are excited to announce that we have decided on the parade theme for our Fourth of July 2023 Parade; thank you to all our neighbors to submitted ideas for us–there were so many good ones! The 2023 theme is…
Remember that any street or family wishing to participate in this year’s parade may do so! You do not have to create a float or have a lot of people to enter the parade.
Here are a few ideas it would be fun to see: -bike brigade -tots on wheels -best dressed dog -decorated wagons and strollers
Think outside the box and come up with an entry and join the parade fun!
Why just watch the annual Montevideo 4th of July Parade, when you can be in it!
The theme this year will be National Parks.
