Mayor Steve Leary will lead a special presentation at 9:15 a.m. from the main stage which will include an “Oath of Allegiance” naturalization ceremony for 20 citizenship applicants, most of whom live or work in Winter Park. The ceremony will include remarks regarding the history of this monumental day, as well as congratulate our new American citizens on their historic milestone. Wear your red, white and blue, bring a blanket or beach chair, and gather with family and friends to enjoy this Winter Park tradition.
The celebration will also feature live patriotic music performed by the Bach Festival Choir and Brass Ensemble, horse-drawn wagon rides, Orlando Cloggers, Rockin’ Roadster Road Show and much more! Children’s activities will include the annual bicycle parade at 9 a.m. (lineup begins at 8:30 a.m.) from City Hall to Central Park, as well as fun games and inflatables. Free hot dogs, watermelon and water will be available for all to enjoy, while supplies last. Help support the event vendors by purchasing chips and a soda to go with your hot dog.
