Kenilworth Civic Association hosting Independence Parade | Community Spirit
From Kenilworth Civic Association
Kenilworth is celebrating a special anniversary with its 40th Annual
Independence Day parade by honoring another notable anniversary. "Honoring
Girl Scouts 100th Anniversary" is the 2012 parade theme. The parade will feature a walking
group of area Girl Scouts leading the parade. We are
proud to recognize an organization with a 100 year history of achievement and join
them in celebrating 2012 as the "Year of the Girl."
The parade is at 6:30 pm on Tuesday July 3, 2012, and is sponsored by
the Kenilworth Civic Association (KCA). Thousands of spectators enjoy this event,
showered with beads, trinkets, and candy by the many parade participants as all
celebrate our nation's birthday.
Kenilworth's 2012 Residents of the Year are Ed and Kathy Bosworth. Ed and
Kathy are long-time residents who have been involved in the Civic Association,
including as members of the Parade Committee and hosting the pre-parade
reception for many years.
"We are proud to honor the Girl Scouts, one of the world's best organizations
at building leadership, in the year of its 100th birthday," said KCA President Dorothy
The parade includes a festive mix of local civic groups, military groups,
bands, clowns, and political and government organizations celebrating
Independence Day. The parade begins and ends at Kenilworth Science &
Technology School, on Boone Drive just east of Kenilworth Parkway.
Information on the Parade, including a map of the parade route, is available
