Piedmonters prep for July 4th parade: More chairs spotted on Highland

Sarah Belle Lin

Spotted on Highland Ave. June 28.

After last week’s false start, a new set of parade chairs made their appearance on June 28. Reminder from the city:

“Please be considerate when placing chairs in front of homes and businesses. Please don’t block access from the street to the sidewalk, so people getting out of cars to visit their neighbors and local businesses can do so without fear of falling. Please keep people in mind who have mobility issues when deciding where to place chairs.

Placing chairs on the sidewalk next to Bus Stops is not allowed. It will block people who are trying to use AC Transit to get around and could block the handicapped lift.”

July 4th festivities will kick off with a pancake breakfast from 8:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. in Veteran’s Hall. The parade starts at 11 a.m. at the corner of Highland and Park and a community picnic is held in Piedmont Park following the parade, with music provided by a big band on the main stage.
