It’s back…. The festive Normandy Park Community 4th of July Celebration will be in full swing for 2022! Don your red, white, and blue as you wave your flag during the Fun Run and Parade. Then meet neighbors and friends for picnic goodies and live music on the Cove lawn. Enjoy a beautiful day to celebrate both our country and our community. It may not fee like summer, but, Monday, July 4th is just around the corner. We hope that you are planning to participate in the community festivities from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. The Board of Trustees encourages ALL Normandy Park residents, their families, and friends to join the festivities.
The day begins at 10:25 a.m. with our 2.8K Fun Run, which is only as competitive as you make it. It’s free. Registration will be day of ONLY. Registration forms can be found on the website, www.npcove.org. The course is from Marvista Elementary to Marine View Drive & SW Normandy Terrace. Runners should arrive at the starting area by 9:30am to complete registration and pick up numbers.
At 10:30 a.m. our Children’s Parade leaves the Marvista parking lot. Everyone is welcome to join in, either from the start (be at Marvista no later than 10:15) or from anywhere along the parade route, which ends at the Cove building. Classic cars, wagons, bicycles, strollers, marching bands – – all are encouraged to participate. Paint your face, decorate your car or bike, get out your flags; be festive! Please, however, no campaigning or political signs. The Normandy Park Arts Commission will once again offer children prizes for all decorated bicycles, located at the NPCC Courts.
Once everyone arrives at the Cove after the parade (at approximately 11:15 a.m.), free hot dogs, beverages, popcorn, and ice cream will be served. The field will be lined with classic cars. We are always looking for additional volunteers to assist with activities. If you can help, please contact the Staci at the Cove office ASAP.
This event is a great opportunity to reconnect with friends and neighbors before going on to your own private 4th of July celebration. Can’t wait to see you there!
