America's freedom will be celebrated in Ruston with our annual kids parade at 10am in front of Don's Ruston Market (N. 51st and Winnifred). But first we have another run through town with additional street closures. The Independence Day 5K (map) starts at 8am at Vassault Park and winds down N. 54th and Shirley to Ruston Way. Freedom Fair road closures start at N. Ferdinand and Ruston Way this year, so no Ruston roads will be closed related to that event (map).
But N. Winnifred closes at 10am for the cutest parade in the nation. Come watch or decorate your pet, bike or scooter and join the celebration. Happy 4th of July!
