Growing up, one of my favorite things about the 4th of July was our neighborhood kid bike parade. I loved waking up early on the morning of the 4th for the bike parade, which was followed by a big neighborhood breakfast. Our current neighborhood also does a kid bike parade, and I LOVE that my kids get to enjoy this fun tradition just like I did. Our neighborhood does the bike parade in the evening with dinner followed by fireworks. It’s such a fun tradition.
I’ve rounded up a bunch of bike parade ideas for the 4th of July. It’s such a fun way for the kids to get involved.
