Fourth of July Executive Board is planning the 2009 Parade and Celebration events and plans to incorporate Centennial related events and themes into its annual presentation that receives several hundred thousand viewers. The popular parade is always held on July 4 and is approx. 100 years old now.
With 2009 Centennial
Celebrations underway, many
local groups and citizens have
expressed interest in
participating in the parade.
Some changes will take place to
accommodate the many requests.
Among them are the fees for
parade entries. It now costs
$300 per non-profit organization
to walk in the parade.

length of the parade. In an

parade timeline, pre-parade
activity will be kept to

sponsorships. It is anticipated
that this year will be

sponsors are also being asked to
contribute to the city’s
Therefore, the parade committee
can't waive fees for any
organization wishing to
enter the parade.
The HB Automobile Dealers and Antique Car owners are struggling too, thereby limiting the number of available cars donated for parade use. For the first time the Board must ask parade entrants to provide their own vehicle with insurance requirements as listed in the parade application. If you cannot, please contact me, Patricia Stier, Executive Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org
