On Tuesday at 9 am, High Point held its Fourth of July parade. There were decorated motorcycles, cars, trucks, golf carts, as well as horses. The community came out to enjoy the parade and waved American flags that were passed out. The parade grand marshal was Joan Frechette.
The Sheriff’s Office mounted patrol was there along with several private horses. There was a drummer and two trumpet players leading off the parade.
This was the first Fourth of July parade since the end of COVID-19. It was exciting for the High Point residents to resume this tradition.
The parade was organized by the garden club, and it was the culmination of several Fourth of July events. On Saturday, a game day was held at the clubhouse, where clubs created booths for residents to play games. As several residents said, “It was like a carnival, and everyone was kids again.”
Many elected officials came out to celebrate with the community. It has been a while since the last parade, and it was reassuring to see the parade return.
