Admiral 4th of July kids parade will walk and roll again this year.

The Admiral 4th of July Kids Parade, begins at 10:00 am at the intersection of 44th Ave SW and Sunset and ends at Hamilton Viewpoint Park.

Kids are encouraged to decorate strollers, scooters, wagons, and bikes. Following the parade old fashioned games will be on at Hamilton Park (3-legged race, wheelbarrow races, and gunnysack races). Games will be cancelled if there is rain (no rain allowed). The ANA (Admiral Neighorhood Association) will be providing popsicles. Holy Rosary Parish has generously made the parade possible with underwriting the liability insurance and handling the permits. Dave Weitzel of Weitzel Construction is again providing the very important port a potties.

Admiral Neighborhood Association volunteers raise funds for the ANA by donning Uncle Sam hats, waving American flags and selling popsicles, baked goods and ANA apparel at this popular Admiral neighborhood event. Local businesses like Little Rae’s, Metropolitan Market, and others have donated baked items to support the ANA’s efforts, and over 800 people participate.

The parade is followed by a community picnic at Hamilton Viewpoint Park.
