Patriotism on Parade in Maxwell Creek
If you love the red, white and blue, then this parade is for you. Maxwell Creek neighborhood has held their annual Fourth of July Parade for over 13 years. Joan Foster and Maria Reilly co-chair this star-spangled event. Each year participation increases, this year there were 35 parade entries.
Proudly sporting the colors of our country, neighbors of all ages patriotically progressed from the parade starting point of the gazebo, located at Celebration Parkway and Royal Oak Drive, to the neighborhood clubhouse. If the parade consisting of bikes, scooters, wagons, walkers and dinosaur represented the alphabet, Murphy’s finest would hold the spots of A and Z.
Awards were given to Madison Phelps (age 5) for most creative, Abisha Alanis (age 5) for most sparkle and Lina Durante (age 2) for most patriotic. Award recipients were each given a gift certificate to Popcorn is Bliss and a cone of popcorn.
Foster said, “I enjoy the neighborhood because of the people that live in our neighborhood and the opportunities to be involved in the events. We are a friendly and helpful neighborhood.”
