Claremont ready to parade down Indian Hill Boulevard

The blankets and chairs will be placed on Indian Hill Boulevard for days in advance. This year’s parade will follow in the tradition of years past, with hundreds of kids on bikes, dogs in carts and folks on horseback as they all jockey for position in what has become one of the most popular events of the day.

At 3 p.m., spectators head en masse to Indian Hill with children in tow and cameras in hand to stake out the best place to sway with the tunes of the marching band and enjoy the sights of the decorative floats and familiar faces.

Officially kicking off at 4 p.m., the parade will wind west on 10th Street to Indian Hill Boulevard, south on Indian Hill Boulevard to Harrison Avenue, and then west on Harrison Avenue to Mountain Avenue at Larkin Park, where the parade disbands.
