What a busy sum- mer it has been already! When you make your plans for the 4th be sure to include Norwalk and one of the best parades around! Parade starts at 10 a.m. at the High School. Route is the same as last year. Booths will officially open at Norwalk City Park immediately following the parade, approximately 11:15 a.m. The Lions Club will be hosting Bingo at the Library again this year. We have many more booths this year, a lot of new ones in addition to our regulars. We will have kid's games and inflatables. Almost Magic Fourth of July Parade Route and Fireworks Cleaning service will be having a dunk tank. Come with an empty stomach as we have plenty of good food! Don't forget the great fireworks put on by the Lions Club. They will be walking the parade route accepting donations. Feel free to throw in a few dol- lars. Our fireworks are the second largest in the Metro. It is not cheap to put on.
