Felida Parade Expects Over 4,000 Kids.
You thought the Hazel Dell Parade of Bands was the only big-time parade in our area… well, the Felida 4th of July Celebration is rapidly becoming a big-time event, especially for the small-folks. This is a non-motorized parade, featuring kids in wagons, strollers and on bikes – all decked out for America. The parade typically draws thousands of entrants. This year the parade’s organizers expect over 4,000 kids to take part. The parade starts and ends at Felida Park, NW 122th St. West of NW 36th Ave. Lineup begins at 10:15.
There are loads of fun activities, games and entertaining times for the entire family. There’s even free food!
The North Salmon Creek Neighborhood Association is helping out and we will be handing out free sno-cones and cotton candy! So stop by our booth and say “Hi”.
The Celebration welcomes back Roger Wendlick and his simply incredible reenactment of George Droulliard from the the Lewis and Clark exposition. Fantastic stuff… if you haven’t seen it before it is truly fascinating. Watch an interview from last year.
