The Ann Taylor Fourth of July Parade and Celebration
The annual City of Nichols Hills' Fourth of July Parade and Celebration, which in February of this year the City Council proclaimed to henceforth be called "The Ann Taylor Fourth of July Parade and Celebration," will once again be held on Saturday, July 4th, 2020 at Kite Park.
The parade starts promptly at 9:00 a.m. with participants lining up at the intersection of Bedford and Huntington. The parade will head west on Bedford to Devonshire then west to Hillcrest. It then proceeds south on Hillcrest to Camden, then east to Kite Park. Decorated bikes, costumes, antique and classic cars are highly recommended and encouraged. All the antique and classic cars need to be lined up on the north side of the park and ready to go by 8:30 a.m.
In light of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, all participants are strongly encouraged to wear masks and practice social distancing. A limited supply of masks will be available for those that do not have a mask. The events that typically follow the parade will be very different this year to help minimize the spread of the virus. The Nichols Hills Band will not be performing, but patriotic music will be played through a soundsystem. The snake wrangler who typically brings a large pet snake will not be attending this year and we will not have public restrooms available. We apologize for any inconvenience, but we hope this event will bring some semblance of normalcy to an otherwise extraordinary year.
