With parade and party, Brentwood-Darlington neighbors celebrate July 4th
Now in its fifth year, the Brentwood-Darlington Neighborhood Association's (BDNA) Fourth of July Parade and Party seemed to hit its stride this year.
On that morning, parents helped their kids decorate bikes, wagons, and strollers, before setting out for the neighborhood parade.
"This is one of our best community-building events," smiled BDNA Chair Chelsea Powers. "Everyone celebrating together – which helps to bring our community together in a fun, low-pressure event for neighbors of all ages and abilities – everyone's welcome!"
The only restriction on the parade is that all entries must be non-motorized, she reported.
"Walking together in our neighborhood as a group, it just feels like the right kind of celebration here," observed Powers.
The parade headed out from the Brentwood Darlington Community Center east on S.E. Ogden Street, before doubling back for a party that included a potluck luncheon and games.
