Fun For Everyone At the Castlewood Parade!

Fun was had by young and old and everyone in between at this year's Castlewood 4th of July parade in Highland Village, Texas. 

The morning started with donuts and bananas topped with sprinkles inside the cool, air conditioned Clubhouse.  After your fill of sugar, it was time to head outside and decorate bikes, trikes and wagons in traditional patriotic flair.  Participants were able to choose from bunting, streamers, flags and buttons.  

Ready to ride!

When everyone was ready to go, Officer Peterson from the Highland Village Police Department led everyone through the streets of Castlewood while onlookers cheered.

After the parade, hot and sweaty residents got their lips ready for the annual watermelon seed-spitting contest.  There was a lot of pressure this year as my daughter, Trinity, was back to defend her title.  I am happy to report that she won again this year in the over five category by about an inch.  It was a close one!

There was even an adult competition.  Here are some action shots.  My mom was runner-up.  Who knew she had it in her!?

And then there's Officer Peterson.  He was put to shame...better practice for next year!

And a special thanks to Kimberley Lyons who is the Castlewood resident and event planner extraordinaire!  She does a fantastic job of organizing our community events and it is no small task.  Give this woman a bullhorn and she's in! Thanks Kimberley!
