Annual Kid’s Bike Parade set for Fourth of July

Looking for some good old-fashioned fun this Fourth of July? Then head into downtown Rockford for the second annual Fourth of July Kid’s Bike Parade, starting at 2 p.m. from the South Squires Towers parking lot (east of the White Pine Trail). Parade participants should gather at 1:30 p.m. to line up. The parade will wind through Squires Street Square with the supervision of the Rockford City Police.

Kids are encouraged to decorate their bikes in red, white and blue. Parents are most welcome to walk along and cheer on the participants. Each child will be given a special gift for participating, and there will a prize for the best dressed bicycle.

Sweet Tooth will have a Bubble Gum Contest after the parade in front of their store. Parade organizers also will have a drop box for retired U.S. flags.

The Heart of Rockford Business Association is the parade sponsor.
