● The 20th Annual Independence Day Parade – the Rotary Club of West El Paso plays host to the patriotic procession. Parade participants will roll out from the Western Hills Methodist Church parking lot at 530 Thunderbird, turning left onto Thunderbird, then left at Shadow Mountain before turning right onto Mesa to its conclusion at Coronado High School. The parade begins at 9 a.m. This year’s theme is “Proud to be an American”
● The 19th annual Rim Area Neighborhood Parade – Anyone and everyone can take part in this parade. Just decorate your bicycle, red wagon, or car, throw on a festive costume or dress your pet up in the red, white and blue and meet at the corner of Rim Road and Kerbey Street at 9:45 for the 10 a.m. start.
