The annual July 4 celebration hosted by both East and West Washington Park Neighborhood Associations (WPENA and WWPNA) is almost here. Running between 11:00am and 1:00pm, this will be the 15th annual event, again located at the Boathouse.
If you have attended previously, you know how enjoyable it has been, especially for kids, who loved decorating and riding their bikes, trikes and strollers in the parade, getting their faces painted, eating ice cream, listening to the Denver Municipal Band’s Brass Quintet, finding free small prizes, and visiting our sponsors’ booths. Provided there are no emergencies, you can also explore a fire engine and meet our first responding fire and police personnel and, hopefully, their horses.
All this is free, thanks to our local business sponsors listed on our posters and banner. The event does need canopy tents and volunteers. Please contact Merce Lea at firstname.lastname@example.org or Tim McHugh at email@example.com.
