Hundreds of West U residents came out to enjoy the city’s annual Independence Day celebration on Wednesday.

West U kicked off the Fourth of July with a bike parade through the city. Parents and their children started lining up around 8:45 a.m. before winding their way to Colonial Pool led by the West U Fire Department.

Some of the festivities included face painting, balloon artists and the annual “Dad’s Belly Flop Contest.”

The West U Rotary Club cooked up its annual beef brisket sandwiches, which pool-goers were able to enjoy with a $5 donation. The proceeds from the BBQ lunch will benefit Challenger.

State Representative Sarah Davis, who is a West U resident, served up root beer floats at the pool.

The event wrapped up around 12 p.m., but the pool remained open until 6 p.m.
