Boones to Be Parade Grand Marshals
Do you have your sparklers, streamers, and Red Flyer wagons ready?? The Park Cities Fourth of July Parade, sponsored by the Rotary Club of the Park Cities, is just 26 days away.
Rotarian Jim Mills announced Mike and Marla Boone will be the co-grand marshals at the University Park City Council meeting last night. Mike is one of the co-founders of Haynes and Boone law firm and the chairman of the board of trustees at SMU.
Mills joked that UP Mayor Mayor Olin Lane, Jr. always asks the club what they’re going to do to bring the wow factor. Last year, the club got vintage planes to make a flyover at the post-parade festivities at Goar Park.They thought about adding a parachuter to the flyover this year, Mills joked, but thought that might present too much of a liability. City Manager Robbie Corder looked a bit relieved.
Be sure to be on the look-out for our float and tent. We’ll be announcing the prizes for our annual Fourth of July Coloring Contest very soon!
