Classic cars sought for Westlake parade
Everyone loves a parade, and this year is no exception. The City of Westlake will hold its annual parade on the Fourth of July, with motorized units starting at 10 a.m. at Lee Burneson Middle School on Dover Center Road. The marching units will assemble at Westlake Christian Church on Hilliard Boulevard and will fill in the parade as it progresses by. The parade will then travel east on Hilliard to Clague Park.
Following the parade, Mayor Dennis Clough and members of the City Council as well as other elected officials will assemble on stage to honor America with various patriotic readings and of course "The Star-Spangled Banner."
As part of the parade, the city is looking for classic cars to help continue the tradition of the classic car timeline for the parade. We are looking for those beautiful cars/trucks or even restored farm equipment from the '20s and '30s all the way up the timeline. If you have a classic car and would like to be part of the parade, please contact Jim Dispirito at 440-617-4420 for more details.
Other events for the day include a Classic Car Show at Clague Park starting at 10 a.m. For more information please contact Bryan Kissling at 440-333-1049. Starting at 6 p.m. inside of Clague Park, DJ Eazy will be spinning the hits as you assemble for the fireworks. Various food vendors will be on site providing a great variety of food including pizza, fries, funnel cakes, ice cream, smoothies, gyros and much more.
And finally the grand finale of the evening will be the traditional fireworks spectacular. The fireworks will be at Clague Park starting at dusk. Again for any information regarding the 4th of July, please contact Jim Dispirito at 440-617-4420.
