July 4th Parade, 2006

Over 85 residents got in the patriotic spirit and joined friends, neighbors, kids, and pooches by participating in the 1st Annual Kessler Plaza/Ravinia Heights 4th of July Parade! This fun-filled event was held in Moss Park, on July 4, 2006.

The participants were lead around the new sidewalk in Moss Park by a special grand marshal—93-year old long-time neighbor Boyd Melbourne and his wife Lil.  Mr. and Mrs. Melbourne are well known throughout the neighborhood for the motorized tricycle built for two that they travel on. Most of the parade participants were dressed patriotic clothing and carried flags. And, not to be left out, many also brought their dogs to also participate in the festivities! After the parade, marchers and spectators visited while enjoying watermelon and cookies, generously provided by Tom Thumb.
