The 4th of July is just around the corner, and there will be plenty of festivities in Normandy Park to celebrate:
The day begins at 10:25 a.m. with a 2.8K Fun Run, which is only “as competitive as you make it.” It’s free, but organizers are asking participants to pre-register (fun run form can be downloaded at www.npcove.org). The course is from Marvista Elementary to Marine View Drive & SW Normandy Terrace. Runners, be sure to arrive at the starting area before 10:15 a.m. as number pick up will close at that time. This year’s custom designed race t-shirt can be ordered in advance by all runners for pick up at the finish line. Non-runners may purchase any left over shirts at the end of the race for $20.
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, floats, wagons, bicycles, strollers, marching bands – all are encouraged to participate! Paint your face, decorate your car or bike, get out your flags and be festive! Please, however, no campaigning or political signs. The Normandy Park Arts Commission will once again offer children prizes for the best deco- rated bicycles.
Once everyone arrives at the Cove after the parade (at approximately 11:15 a.m.), there will be free hot dogs, beverages, pop corn, icees, and ice cream will be served. The field will be lined with the classic cars and, appropriately located away from the vintage autos, we will have balloon animals and face painting! All of this will be accompanied by live music on the lawn.
Organizers are always looking for additional volunteers to assist with activities. If you can help, please contact the Cove office ASAP . This event is a great opportunity to reconnect with friends and neighbors before going on your way to your own, private 4th of July celebration. Can’t wait to see you there!
Please remember that the Normandy Park Community Events are open to the ENTIRE community.
