Every summer on July 4th, the Exchange Club salutes the community by sponsoring a very patriotic parade which ends in a carnival. Children decorate bikes and trikes, families line the streets, businesses boast floats with banners and the whole shebang is lead by our City Councilman and the neighborhood firefighters. The carnival fills the recreation center parking lot and offers food, fun, and music to the community. The Exchange Club mans the water booth, handing out free ice cold water bottles.
- Parade setup starts at 7:00 – Lake Highlands North Rec Center
- Float line up starts at 8:00

The parade starts promptly at 9:00 am at the corner of Church Rd and Green Oaks Dr. It follows westward on Church Rd to the Lake Highlands North Recreation Center. The end of the parade is wholly dependent on the number of entrants, which usually last one hour. After the parade, spectators, participants and volunteers enjoy the festivities at the post parade carnival located at the Lake Highlands North Community Park and Recreation Center.
