Kids are invited to show their patriotic spirit by decorating their bicycles, scooters, and wagons and wearing their red, white, and blue for the first annual Kids’ Fourth of July Parade in downtown Camden. The parade will start at 10:30 am on Saturday, July 2, 2016. Participants are asked to meet at Camden City Hall at 10 am dressed in their parade regalia. At 10:30, a volunteer drum and fife corps, assembled for the occasion and under the direction of Robert Slade, will lead the parade down Rutledge Street to Broad Street where it will end. This is a free event.
For the safety of the participants, motorized vehicles are not allowed, and children 10 and under must be escorted by an adult. Don’t forget to decorate your bicycle and your helmet!
The parade is sponsored by Books on Broad and Coffee, Kershaw County Library, City of Camden, Camden Fire Department, and the Hobkirk Hill Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution. For more information or to volunteer, please contact Laurie Slade Funderburk at 803-713-7323 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
