The City of West U Parks and Recreation Department will host its annual Independence Day Bike Parade and Pool Party on Wednesday, July 4.

The Bike Parade begins promptly at 9:00 a.m. Participants are encouraged to decorate their bicycles, tricycles, wagons, and strollers. The parade route will continue west on University, turn south on Academy, and then proceed west on Byron to Colonial Park Pool.

The Fourth of July festivities will continue from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. with complimentary admission to the pool.

Some of the festivities include clowns, caricature artists, face painters and balloon artists, as well as a money five and the annual “Dad’s Belly Flop Contest.” Pool goers can cool off with a root beer float and take a dip in the pool.

West U Rotary will also hold their annual BBQ fundraiser. A suggested donation of $5 will get you a plate of tender beef brisket. The event wraps up around 12 p.m., but the pool will remain open until 6 p.m.
