4th of July Parade


Thursday, July 4th, 2024


Every summer on or around July 4th, the Exchange Club of Lake Highlands salutes the community by hosting a patriotic parade and carnival. The parade includes children with decorated bikes and trikes, local neighborhoods, organizations, and businesses with floats, Dallas Fire Rescue trucks, and the whole shebang is lead by the Grand Marshall. The carnival is immediately afterwards in the circle drive next to the Lake Highlands Aquatic Center with food, fun, and music for the entire community.
