1 p.m.: The Parade - Freedom: A Gift From Our Soldiers - presented by the Rotary Club of Westerville, the parade starts at 1 p.m. turning onto State St. at Schrock Rd.
Most of you know this, but for those who don't - parade-goers stake their parade spots very early in the day! And, it's not only a good parade, but it's a 2 and a half to 3 hour parade, so be prepared - sunblock, hydration, etc.
Thanks to 7-year-old Grant Mudre of St. Paul School for suggesting this year's parade theme.
9 p.m.: Westerville Symphony Patriotic Pops at the Sport Complex on N. Cleveland near W. County Line.
10 p.m.: Fireworks start at Park Meadow off Schrock Rd. Excellent viewing also at the Sports Complex on Cleveland Ave. and Heritage Park at W. Main and N. Cleveland.
From the vendors and management team of the Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market, have a safe, happy Independence Day Weekend.
See you July 6th at the market!
