Revelers at last year’s Webster Groves parade cheered for Webster University’s entry, “Celebrating 40 Years Of Military Education.” The 2015 float will celebrate Webster’s Centennial year.

Members of the Webster University community (faculty, staff, students, alumni and their families) are invited to participate in the City of Webster Groves’ Community Days Parade Saturday, July 4, and represent the University in this major community event. The parade begins at 10 a.m.

The University’s Centennial-themed float theme is “100 Years and Counting,” and will be decked out in festive Webster blue and gold. Come show your pride for Webster University and celebrate the 4th of July holiday at this special event!

Join Your Webster Colleagues: Volunteer to Walk the Parade, Respond by June 19

Energetic walkers are needed to hand out small items to the crowd during the parade. The route, lined with enthusiastic revelers, is approximately two miles long and takes about 70 minutes to walk or ride. Rides will be provided from the end of the parade route (the Webster Groves Recreational Center) back to the parking lot behind Webster Hall.

Walkers will gather behind Webster Hall at 9:15 a.m. before going together to the staging area, usually on the north side of Lockwood Ave., in front of Holy Redeemer School (341 E. Lockwood). Dress code is casual and comfortable. Walkers are encouraged to wear their own red, white or blue shirt.

If you would like to participate as a walker or monitor the float vehicle safety, please contact Lindsey LaFore at 314-246-8611 or, by June 19, with your name/guest name(s), department, phone and email.
