The Third Annual Watermelon Parade will be held on July 4th. It starts with a free watermelon feed at 2pm at the corner of 53rd St. N. and 167th St. W. The Colwich Lions Club Sponsors the watermelon and the Colwich Clovers 4-H Club serves it. Wet parade lineup in The Keg parking lot begins at 2:30 and the parade begins at 3. A wet parade is basically a rolling water fight, with parade participants and spectators throwing water at each other (you must bring your own water).
