Virtual 4th of July parade for children set

This year, the Currituck County Kids Parade has gone virtual. Participants ages one through 18 can decorate their bike or wagon and snap a picture of themselves (or have someone else take one) with it.

The pictures can be submitted to 350th.com/july4th/ or to P.O. Box 44, Currituck, NC 27929. The deadline for submissions is July 10 and all entrants should include their mailing address. Each youngster’s photograph will then be shown during a “virtual parade” of entries at 350th.com/july4th/.

The Currituck County Historical Society plans to award special recognition cash prizes to three entries. In addition, the first 100 entries will receive a new $2 bill, which includes an image of the signing of the Declaration of Independence on the back.
