33rd Annual Parade In Lennox


Lennox is a small town, but it plays host to one of the biggest Fourth of July parades in KELOLAND.

Lorene DeNeui loves the Fourth of July. 

“Time to honor the veterans and the fireworks with your kids.” DeNeui said.

The Lennox parade is a giant reunion of family and friends, that keeps getting bigger every year. “I don’t think I remember them being so filled as they are this year, Eolm Street, where they start, that was full this morning.” she says.

Rylan Rodriguez’s experienced watching the Lennox parade for the first time this year. His friends have told him all about it and he’s got big expectations.

“All the fire trucks, the police cars, like sirens and stuff. Just a whole bunch of candy, that’s the best.” Rodriguez says.

But while the kids dive for candy, the guy driving the green tractor is hoping they’ll take just a moment to think about the people who paved the way for this parade.

“This is our heritage. This is what broke up the prairies. This is the way we used to farm. You don’t sit in an air conditioned cab. You had to be out there, you ate dirt.” Van Landeen said.

 But eating candy tastes a lot better than indulging in dirt.

“Kit kat or snickers. Hey, it’s the best thing. Candy is awesome.” Rodriguez said.

This was the 33rd annual Fourth of July parade.

The Lennox Municipal Band will perform a free concert tonight at eight, followed by fireworks.
