A “Patriotic Walk Around the Block” is happening in the village of Old Mission tomorrow, July 4, 2021, at 1 p.m.

Everyone is welcome to attend this event previously called the “Bay Street Parade,” and it’ll be the sixth anniversary of the fun event.

Old Mission Gazette is Reader Supported.

In fact, everyone is not only welcome, but you’re all welcome to participate, too. Bring your bikes, golf carts, wagons, strollers and vehicles decked out for Independence Day.

The event starts at 1 p.m. sharp on Sunday, but if you’d like to participate, gather at Mike and Karen Norton’s house, 18805 Bay Street, at 12:30 p.m. They’re across the street from Haserot Beach.

The route is north on Bay Street, west on Woodland Road, and south on Traverse Street, ending at the American Legion Hall, where Tom Petzold, U.S. Air Force Major, Retired, will say the Pledge of Allegiance.

No registration is required, and if you’d rather sit on the sidelines, just bring a lawn chair and watch the festivities. See you there!

A NOTE FROM JANE: I started Old Mission Gazette in 2015 because I felt a calling to provide the Old Mission Peninsula community with local news. After decades of writing for newspapers like the New York Times and Los Angeles Times, and magazines like Family Circle and Ladies' Home Journal, I really just wanted to write about my own community where I grew up on a cherry farm and raised my own family. So of course, I started my own newspaper. Because the Gazette is mainly reader-supported, I hope you'll consider tossing a few bucks my way if I mention your event, your business, your organization or your news item, or if you simply love reading about what's happening on the Old Mission Peninsula.
