Parade : Lakewood July 4th Parade


This year’s theme is Lakewoodstock! With the 50 year anniversary this year of the original Woodstock and the already popular Lakewoodstock coined word that was celebrated for several years in Lakewood Shopping Center, the Lakewood neighborhood made their decision loud and clear. Now the fun begins…

Help warm up the Parade Route by running in the Annual Lakewood Mini-Marathon Fun Run (approx 1.2 miles). The race starts at 8:00 am sharp at Lakewood Blvd and Cambria and finishes by the tennis courts at Tokalon.

The Lakewood 4th of July Parade has a long and rich tradition. The first parade consisted of the two Neikirk children riding their bikes for about 2 houses on the sidewalk in the 7300 block of Lakewood Blvd. in 1964. The idea grew from that point into a block party and parade for the families located in the 7200 and 7300 blocks of Lakewood Blvd.

It expanded from that point to include more of the neighborhood and the route was lengthened, with the awards and refreshments area set up in a vacant lot at the comer of Westlake and Copperfield. The route went from Cambria and Lakewood Blvd. to Copperfield and left to the vacant lot.

Parade begins at 10:00 am sharp on JULY 4th at Lakewood and Cambria.

Watch my video of the 2009 Parade. I can’t believe it’s been 10 years!
