4th of July Parade/Carnival at Ramsey Park

Dear Neighbors,

Don’t miss the Rosedale 4th of July Parade and the glorious return of the Carnival at Ramsey Park. 10 am to noon on the 4th (that’s today!!)!

Meet at the park pavilion at 9:30 to decorate your bikes and wagons. The parade starts at 10 am… a pedestrian stroll around the park. Pets and kids and bikes and strollers welcome.

After the parade enjoy some cold watermelon and choose a partner for the community water balloon toss contest.

Then at 10:30 wander over to the ticket table and enjoy our neighborhood kids carnival. Fishing booth and duck pond and lots of other activities. Have a snack and cold drink and have rose painted on your cheek! Proceeds are dedicated to park improvements.

See you all there!
