HUBER HEIGHTS — One week before the Star Spangled Heights Parade, the weather forecast indicated the possibility of a soggy Fourth of July. However, the entire day on Saturday, July 4 was beautiful with no threat of rain allowing 75 entries in the parade to enjoy the ride.
Claiming the Most Patriotic Float Award was the Huber Heights Senior Center. Receiving the Most Creative Float Award was St. Peter Cub Scout Pack 169. Earning the Best Overall Float Award was the HHYFC Drill Team. According to Margie Muhl, these winners are expected to be recognized at the July 27 meeting of the Huber Heights City Council.
Muhl said the parade went very smoothly.
“It seemed like everyone had fun,” she said. “So far, after the parade, I have received many comments and emails from the participants and they said they just had a wonderful time, thought it was well organized and want to come back.”
“It seemed like everybody had fun and that’s what matters and the community enjoyed it and that’s the purpose,” added Muhl.
