Special to the Banner

We all love a parade, expecially on the birthday anniversary of our nation. So join Ridgewood Subdivision on July 4 at 10 a.m. for an unforgettable event.

Ridgewood Subdivision is a unique place to live — its residents tell you — as the Homeowners Association has many events and activities scheduled throughout the year.

Six years ago, the neighborhood’s Fourth of July parade was born. Adults, children of all ages and pets joined in the fun of dressing up in red, white and blue for the holiday. Bikes, antique cars, gators, golf carts and this year, lawnmowers will be decorated to commemorate the Fourth.

Participating, also, in past years were interesting characters — real and portrayals — such as George W. Bush, Hillary Clinton, Uncle Sam, the Statue of Liberty, the Independence Day Pup, the “Polyester” Sisters and the Sons of the American Revolution.

Ridgewood will honor its veterans with songs, poems and recognition.

As a symbol of summer, eating watermelon ends the patriotic festivities in the cul-de-sac in stately oaks. So, bring a lawn chair and join in the fun and patriotism of the occasion.

For directions and any questions, call Deborah Flower at 476-3907 or June McDonald at 650-6570.
