Milwood NA’s Fourth of July House Parade

After much deliberation, brainstorming, and with a heavy heart, MNA will sadly not be able to provide an event that promotes any type of gathering this year.

HOWEVER, we are hopeful that with your help we can still have some Neighborhood Fun and Spirit for our Nation’s Independence!

Our thought is to have neighbors decorate their homes/front yards for the week or even two!

Then our neighbors can choose their own Self-Guided House Decoration Parade Route to drive, bike, walk by in celebration.

This will provide a great option since the city has closed the parks and several water access options for the July 4th weekend.

So please consider pulling out the decor you have (or pick some up with your mask, of course) and place it in your yard to brighten our neighborhood’s spirit!

If you plan to participate in decorating, please send an email to milwoodna1@gmail.com reply to this email with your address or click here. We will post a map on the website and in an email on Saturday. Thanks for helping us make this year the best COVID will allow!

There will be a prize for the Most Patriotic, Most Fun, Community Favorite, & Best Spirit. So please vote on or before July 8th!

Happy Independence Day!

If possible, please support MNA by paying your $15/yr voluntary Dues! Click HERE to do so. It’s quick and easy!
