Getting Psyched for Fourth of July In Skippack

July 4th in Skippack for 2016
Fourth of July 2016 falls on a Monday. The Fourth of July parade begins at 11:00 a.m. and travels down Skippack Pike (Route 73), thru the heart of Skippack Village. BBQ at Parc Bistro at 3 p.m., and fireworks start at dusk in Palmer Park, near Skippack Elementary School, with parking areas off of Heckler Road and Creamery Road.

I love Fourth of July in Skippack.

I love watching people line up along the parade route, the anticipation of fun in a small town, the beautifully restored antique cars as they roll down Skippack Pike, the optimistic music of marching bands, floats sponsored by local shops and organizations, mummers in their peacock colors, fire engines blasting their sirens and firefighters spraying the crowd with cooling water, the excitement and laughter of children.

I love fireworks at dusk in Palmer Park.

I love it all.
