Annual 4th of July Children’s Parade in Monroe
MONROE, La. (KNOE) - Fourth of July weekend kicked off with the annual Children’s Parade at Triangle Park in Monroe.
Kids decorated bikes, scooters and wagons in red, white and blue.
Hundreds of families came to participate Saturday. Last year’s was canceled due to the pandemic.
The parade started about 40 years ago and it continues to grow with help from the community.
“It’s exciting when we can all come together to celebrate Independence Day, to celebrate the birth of our nation with the whole community. It’s not just the neighborhood. It’s everybody. People drive from all over the town to come here, so it’s real fun to see everyone come together and celebrate,” Monroe Rotary Club member Leah Sumrall said.
There was face painting for the children, free snowballs and watermelon provided by businesses in the community.
It’s all sponsored by the Monroe Rotary Club.
