Yes, it is almost the 4th of July again. Seems like old man winter just left our doorsteps and after a brief spring, we went directly into summer mode.
Auburn 4th of July Parade is going to be more fun than ever! The Auburn Firedevils look forward to a celebration that will showcase the best participants and provide a memorable day for onlookers to share with family and friends. Upon the conclusion of the parade, plan to enjoy a cool, refreshing lunch with our community leaders and neighbors at the fire station before heading off to those evening festivities.
It will be a tremendous help to the Parade Committee if you drop off a confirmation that you plan to participate in our parade no later than Tuesday, July 1, 2014 at Auburn Firedevils, c/o Patti Phillips, 18750 Auburn Road, Auburn Twp, Ohio 44023. This will help us organize the parade. If there are any questions, please feel free to contact Patti Phillips at 440-343-0054 or text questions.
The line-up for the parade begins at 11 am and the parade kicks off promptly at 12 noon. The parade route starts in the The Meadows off Auburn Road, proceeds south on Auburn Road to East Washington Street for a final destination at the Auburn fire station. There are many places along the route to view the parade.
Our parade line-up area is surrounded by well-kept lawns and private homes, it is important that we be as thoughtful and responsible as possible to keep these areas neat and clean of debris. Just as a reminder, there is no parking for the parade participants in The Meadows as far as leaving your vehicle until the parade is over. We encourage our participants to have someone drop them off at The Meadows and park behind the fire station.
Presents shared during the parade are enjoyed from our smallest spectators to the oldest spectators. It is wonderful to hear the spectators compare their bounty at the fire station to see which the smallest or the oldest has the biggest bounty. Items to be “gently” tossed during the parade must be supplied by parade participants.
We look forward to another successful year but can only accomplish this with the assistance of many volunteers and parade participants.
