4th of July

Your entire family, pets included, are invited to march with the Ancona School in the “4th on 53rd Parade” in Hyde Park. Marchers will meet at 10:30 a.m. at the Hyde Park Bank parking lot. The parade begins promptly at 11:00 a.m. Enjoy a cruise around the neighborhood that ends at Nichols Park, where you can enjoy music and fun.

No need to RSVP just show show up! We will have some signs for people to carry and ask that you wear your favorite Ancona spirit wear. The route is rather long. If you have children under the age of six we suggest bringing strollers or wagons. See you on the 4th!
