4th of July Parade, Picnic and 5K Run
We have an exciting opportunity for High Valley. We have been invited to join the nearby Maple Hills neighborhood for their annual 4th of July parade, picnic, and 5K Run. You are welcome to participate in one or all of those events. This is in lieu of the parade usually held in High Valley. We’re trying something new this year and are super excited about it! We hope you will be too!
Parade: The parade has decorated cars, motor bikes, parents walking or biking with their kids, and some are on the sidelines throwing candy to the participants. The parade starts at the Maple Hills pool parking lot at 12:30 (see map). High Valley neighbors will try to meet in the designated spot on the map around 12:00 (see purple star on map). You have the option to bring lawn chairs and watch the parade anywhere along the parade route or you can participate by walking with other High Valley neighbors. Kids can also decorate their bikes if they like. We should also have a banner to represent our neighborhood in the parade as well.
Picnic/Hotdog Feed: Free hotdogs will be served at the Maple Hills Park (see map) just after the parade. Since High Valley is new to this event, we will need to give them a head count by June 17th so they can adjust their hotdog order. If you need to change your commitment in any way, please do so before June 17th so that we can get an accurate count to our friendly neighbors who have graciously invited us to celebrate with them. Here’s the link to sign up for the hotdog feed. There is an option to respond “maybe”, but please sign up only if you are a “yes”. We want to be able to pass on a firm head count for their hot dog order by the 17th.
5 K Run: This event starts at 9am at the Maple Hills Pool Parking Lot (see map). You can find out more and register at this link if you like.
Parking: There should be parking at Maple Hills Elementary School (see map). If not, people generally park along the side roads without issue, just not on the parade route (see map). Just be careful not to block a driveway.
Address: Maple Hills Park, 15256 204th Ave SE, Renton, WA 98059
Hopefully, that covers it. If not, please reach out with any questions.
