Plan ahead for Kenwood 4th of July Celebrations



It’s time to start thinking ahead to summer, July 4 to be exact. You can live your dream of being a part of the Kenwood Hometown 4th of July Parade this year. Bring the kids, the old folks, your pets, your cars, and be a part of Kenwood’s enduring and endearing annual celebration. And it’s never been easier to do. You can sign up online at www.kenwoodparade.org (look for online signup) or download and print your own form. You can also pick up a paper entry form at the Kenwood Press and drop it off there when you’re done.

It’s also a good time to decide if you want to take part in either the 10K or 3K Kenwood Footraces that kick off the day’s celebrations. Kenwood’s is the longest running 10K footrace in California and is very popular. Sign up early at www.kenwoodfootrace.com because it often sells out. Check-in and race-day registration starts at 6 a.m. The 3K Race starts at 7:30 a.m. and the 10K Race starts three minutes later.

There will, of course, be the traditional pancake breakfast at the Kenwood Community Church, as well. Breakfast will be served from 7:30 to 11:30 in the morning.

And the day will be topped of with a BBQ, live music, and family fun from the Rotary Club of Glen Ellen-Kenwood. Enjoy a relaxed lunch with your neighbors and friends.

Volunteers are always welcome. Please call Jay Gamel at 833-5306 if you have any questions.
