Fourth of July Picnic and Parade
The Fourth of July Picnic and Parade marks the unofficial start of summer in Nakoma. Held each year on the holiday itself, the event begins with a morning bicycle parade through Cherokee and Chippewa Streets. The children then make their way to Thoreau School where a tradition summer picnic awaits. Food and drink, games, prizes, and live music are just a handful of the fun activities in store for families. There is no prior cost for the event although tickets are sold for the food and games.
