The Ahwatukee community of Mountain Park Ranch is again sponsoring a children’s Fourth of July parade at 8 a.m. on Monday July 4. All families are invited to join in with Mountain Park Ranch family and friends.

The parade route begins at the Foothills Baptist Church on Thunderhill Road and will follow Thunderhill east to the park near Ray Road. The Phoenix Fire Department will be on hand to lead the kids down Thunderhill. Start decorating your bikes, trikes, wagons, scooters and electric kiddy cars with red, white and blue streamers and ribbons. Making a small float could be a great neighborhood project to keep the kids busy.

A family celebration will follow the parade at Thunderhill Park around 10:30 a.m. The celebration will include a DJ, superslide and other family activities. There will be sno-cones, hot dogs and drinks for the entire family and awards and prizes for best decorations and spirit.

For more information, contact the HOA office at (480) 704-5000.
