Big Spring’s annual event Pops in the Park may have been canceled this year due to COVID-19, but this year’s Highland Fourth of July parade will continue.
The annual Highland Fourth of July Parade in Big Spring has been going on for many years. Everyone in the community is welcome to participate and/or watch, Saturday, July 4th. The parade line-up and entry judging is at 9:30 AM on the corner of Robb and Highland. At 10 AM the parade then travels over to Goliad.
Shonda Folsom, organizer for the event, told KBest News that there are 15 different categories that entries will be judged in.
"We just ask that people pull out their red, white, and blue. Grab some star-shaped sunglasses or some streamers and be creative with it," said Folsom.
Although, the parade is an outdoor activity spectators are encouraged to space out more this year. Folsom advised that there will still be drinks and snacks at the end of the parade but this year those items will be prepackaged.
Anyone interested in contributing a donation to the event, or if anyone has questions about the parade, they should contact Shonda Folsom at 432-213-7671, or email her at email@example.com.
