The Fourth of July is almost upon us and Lakewood residents have plenty to do, including their annual parade. This year's parade is titled 'Lakewood Loves the Lake 4th of July Parade' and is a parae for kids of all ages. Prior to the parade is the Lakewood 4th of July Fun Run, which will take participants along the same route the parade will later take.

Runners that want more of a challenge can take part in the Flagpole 8K, which will take place around White Rock Lake. And finally, residents of Little Forest Hills have their own parade planned.
