Calling all children to march in the Fourth of July Parade

The theme of the 2009 Kiwanis/Danville Fourth of July Parade, presented by Heller Jewelers, will be "Celebrating Our Youth." In honor of the theme, the Grand Marshal for 2009 will be 1,000 children walking and riding their bikes decorated in red, white and blue at the beginning of the parade and Kiwanis is looking for more entrants.

The parade starts at 9 a.m. Kiwanis expects about 125 entries in 24 different categories which will be judged. Winners will receive a Best of Parade award at the Kiwanis luncheon meeting July 9.

The Town of Danville will remove any chairs or items placed out before 6 p.m. July 3 to reserve places to view the parade. Also residents are requested not to use chalk or tape on the sidewalks for this purpose, due to cleanup costs, especially since the sidewalks cannot be washed after the parade due to water restrictions.
