Hi Neighbors,

It is almost time for our traditional Barton Hills 4th of July Parade and Celebration!

Almost time to decorate our bicycles, wagons, strollers, and pets and dress in our best red, white & blue finery and step out to parade down Barton Hills Drive from Barton Hills Market to Barton Hills Elementary School, or wave to our neighbors as they parade past. This is the time to see and be seen in the neighborhood.

A schedule of the parade and celebration is below. I hope to see you next Monday.
