Every summer on July 4th, the Exchange Club of Lake Highlands salutes the community by hosting a patriotic parade and carnival. The parade includes children with decorated bikes and trikes, local neighborhoods, organizations, and businesses with floats, Dallas Fire Rescue trucks, and the whole shebang is lead by the Grand Marshall. The carnival is immediately afterwards in the circle drive next to the Lake Highlands Aquatic Center with food, fun, and music for the entire community.
- Carnival setup starts at 7:00 – Lake Highlands North Rec Center
- Parade line up starts at 8:00 – North Highlands Bible Church
- Kids Parade judging starts at 8:30

The parade starts promptly at 9:00 am at the corner of Church Road and Green Oaks Drive. It follows westward on Church Road to the Lake Highlands Aquatic 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 Aquatic Center.
