July 4th Parade

With the infant rooms leading the pack at the front of the parade line, every child at St. Vincent accompanied by their teachers, marched around Oz Park to show their pride for the red, white, and blue!

Our yearly July 4th Parade marks the end of a week of lessons, art projects, and activities, all centered around our Nation's history, Constitution, and Declaration of Independence.

It's a great way to get children of all ages excited about our national holiday and instill in them its significance beyond just setting off fireworks. With 350+ kids marching and chanting around the park, they got lots of attention from the neighbors and passersby cheering them on and honking their car horns.
