Attend a Fourth of July Parade. We live in Lake Highlands, and we have ridden on the Lake Highlands Area Early Childhood PTA float before but this year I thought it would be fun to see the entire parade. So, we parked by Lake Highlands High School, grabbed our chairs and sat down in the shade to watch our cool neighborhood parade.
It was exciting to see the new mayor of Dallas, Mike Rawlings, in the parade.
And then after the very enjoyable parade, we went across the street to the Lake Highlands North Recreation Center playground and spraypark and visited all of the booths, got free t-shirts from Ebby Realtors and made bracelets, got popcorn from a neighborhood church, petted some animals, bounced in the YMCA bounce house, saw people climbing a rock climbing wall, and drank some free iced tea from the Lake Highlands UMC booth. Love those Methodists!
There is just nothing else like a 4th of July parade.
