A Look Back At A Village Favorite

Indian Hill’s annual July 4th Parade traditionally marks the mid-point of summer and is a great way for friends and neighbors to re-connect in a kid-friendly environment.  This year’s event delivered  a top-notch experience for all, from near-perfect weather to live music courtesy of the “Most Wanted” band, good food, inflatable gyms, face painting and plenty of fun. 

More than 35 parade entries were noted, including some fabulous antique cars, sports teams, village dignitaries, and equestrian clubs.  Retiring Indian Hill/Madeira fire chief Steve Ashbrock served as Grand Marshall of the parade.

Ably chaired by Leigh Anne Meurer and Barbara Sharp, along with help from Village staff Beth Wood, Jessica Chaney and Jerry Hensley, the parade and post-parade activities drew record crowds of adults, kids and dogs.  Here’s a look back at some of the fun and friendship shared that day.
