The annual Fourth of July celebration in White Rock will be held again this year at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 366 Grand Canyon.

For the second year, arrangements have been made for a U.S. flag to be flown over the National Cemetery in Santa Fe.

An organized run/walk will transport the flag from Santa Fe that morning and arrive in White Rock in time for the parade.

Organizers invite all veterans and current military personnel to join in the final leg of the run/walk from the intersection of Rover Boulevard and Grand Canyon Drive, two blocks east to the church parking lot. There, they will be honored with a short message, the history of the flag will be shared, and the raising of the colors will be followed by the national anthem. Anyone who wants to be part of this group are asked to meet at the intersection at 9:30 a.m.

The Children’s Parade will begin after the ceremony. Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts from various area units will lead the parade carrying the colors. Any veterans or military personnel who want to participate in the short parade, will follow the colors, children of all ages will be after that.
