CEDAR RAPIDS — It’s time to parade some Red, White and Blue, which is the theme for this year’s patriotic parade held Saturday from 10 a.m. to noon through the NewBo District and Czech Village.
More than 100 entries will hit the pavement, and the trackless train also will be stoked.
Bring your own chairs or blankets, but leave pets at home unless they’re actually in the parade.
The fun begins at 9 a.m. with the Building Block Extravaganza inside NewBo City Market and Imagination Square on the market lawn, as well as music and the Street Taco Showdown.
Freedom Festival Parade
WHEN: 10 a.m. to noon Saturday
WHERE: NewBo District to Czech Village, Third Street SE to 16th Avenue SW, Cedar Rapids
