Don’t Miss Kentwood’s 4th of July Parade!


Marching bands, classic cars, local businesses and community service groups will all be participating in Kentwood’s 4th of July Parade.  It begins at 9:30a.m. and the route starts on Eastern Ave between 52nd and 60th.

WKTV Community Television will be there with numerous volunteers and state of the art equipment to bring you live views of the parade.  So if you can’t get there, watch it on Channel 25 at 12:30 and 7:30p.m. that day.

The parade coverage will be hosted by Linda Pacic, Kathey Batey and Sophia Maslowski. Show Producer Nate Diedrich is looking forward to coordinating the project which the station has covered for the last 20 years.

“Produced entirely by volunteers, WKTV’s coverage of the Kentwood 4th of July Parade is one of our favorite annual events.  The parade provides a fantastic opportunity to create exclusive local content made by and for the people in our community,” he said.

Here are just a few of the participants that will be featured:

Kentwood Fire Dept., East Kentwood Marching Band, West Michigan Mustang Club, and Celebration Cinema.

Restaurants:  Culver’s, Dave & Busters, McDonalds, The Salted Cupcake, and Java Cone.

There is nothing like the excitement of a parade to commemorate the 4th.

If you would like to be a volunteer for WKTV’s production team, give the station a call at 261-5700.
