KERRVILLE – Yesterday, July 4th, while many Americans celebrated Independence Day in their own way, a neighborhood in Kerrville welcomed kids of all ages, parents, grandparents, and even pets to the Bluebell Community July 4 Bike Parade.
Families decorated their bikes, trikes, wagons, scooters, and strollers and lined up at Trinity Baptist Church at 9:00 a.m.
Led by a Kerrville Fire Department fire truck, the participants began the parade route, which was about 1 mile long. Residents stood outside their homes waving at the children as they passed by. At the end of the route, participants received a frozen popsicle and had the opportunity to check out the Kerrville Fire Department’s fire truck.
Approximately 100 people participated in the parade and many involved were saying how excited they were to have an event like this in Kerrville.
The event was put together by Sarah Lewis, Katy Kappel, and Martha Hix along with other volunteers and a special appearance by KFD.
“We hope to continue this event next July 4th and hopefully we can make it even bigger!” said Sarah Lewis.
