A New Fourth of July Celebration
Inaugural Great American Parade and fireworks spectacular lit up Lake Nona
We kicked off the Fourth of July holiday week festivities with an all-new event – the Great American Parade and fireworks show in Laureate Park. The socially-distanced event allowed residents from across the community to celebrate the holiday safely together.
Along the parade route, families cheered and waved flags from the comfort of their front porches or lined the sidewalks along the parade route decked out in red, white, and blue, as dozens of local businesses and organizations made their way through the neighborhood.
The drive-by parade featured patriotic floats and displays from Orlando VA, City of Orlando Commissioner Jim Gray, Beep, the Lake Nona Regional Chamber of Commerce, stunt performers and puppeteers, former Miss America Ericka Dunlap, and many more.
For those who didn’t get a chance to see the live fireworks show, Nonahood News captured a bird’s eye view with drone footage. Click here to watch the livestream of the firework spectacular on Facebook.
