Enjoy a bedazzling ­parade, picnic fare, family games, great music and award-winning art.

Lineup for the ECA’s July 4th Parade begins at 10:30 AM, Monday, July 4th, at Edgebrook Elementary School. The Parade starts at 11 AM, heading west on Hiawatha to Central, south to Devon, west to Lehigh, north to Hiawatha, and west to Wildwood Park. Check out the map.

The picnic starts at 12 PM at Wildwood Park.

Hamburgers, hot dogs, cheeseburgers, and brats will be available at the picnic. The Boy Scouts will be offering watermelon and roasted corn on the cob. Dessert will be provided by The Chocolate Shoppe.

This year’s celebration features two concerts.

On the Main Stage, Edgebrook favorites The Country Doctors, will perform at 12:30 PM. The Children’s Stage, new this year, features Laura Doherty & Friends at 12:30 PM. Laura may be familiar to Edgebrook Branch Library patrons—Children’s Librarian Sandy Art plays Laura’s CDs during Story Time.

A gallery of artwork from the ten prizewinners of the ECA’s July 4th Poster Contest will be on display for your viewing enjoyment.

Add games, prizes, photo ops with our Founding Fathers, and a bouncy house to the mix and the ECA’s Celebration is a not-to-be-missed event!

Whether you start at the beginning in the Parade, watch from the sidelines, or wait for the picnic and concerts to start at the park, you don’t want to miss the event residents enthusiastically enjoy every year.

Call for Gardeners!

The ECA Helps Wildwood IB Rebuild Their Music & Sports Programs

When the ECA speaks about building community, we don’t just mean lending a hand with the snow plowing. We recently helped Wildwood IB School by purchasing an engraved paving brick. ECA Board Member Michelle Brugioni was the liaison with the school and came up with the encouraging slogan etched in the brick.

ECA members have long supported local schools because the only way to build community is brick by brick.

Board Members Mary Biesty, Michelle Brugioni, and Chad Weiden focus on school issues.
