PATRIOTIC PARADE was part of the fun at Lillian Way Block Party.

Residents along Lillian Way between Clinton and Rosewood celebrated Independence Day with a block party for the 23rd year in a row last month.

CONTESTANTS decorated their wheels.

Activities included a bike and scooter parade and contest. Meaghan Curcio, one of the organizers of the event, said kids in the neighborhood spent days decorating their chosen conveyances.

After the bicycles, scooters and tricycles paraded on the block, three winners were chosen.

Other activities were a water balloon toss, a three-legged race with different age categories and two bouncy houses. Residents also played musical chairs, guessed how many M&Ms were in a jar and explored a fire truck from local Station 27. A taco cart and an ice cream truck were also on hand.

THREE-LEGGED race included the under-five set.

People set out lawn chairs and food out for friends and neighbors.

The evening was rounded out by the annual fireworks display at the nearby Wilshire Country Club. Neighbors stood or sat at the end of the street to enjoy the show.

Every year, residents contribute funds for the food and festivities and work with Councilman Ryu’s office to obtain a permit from the city and barricades to shut down the street for the party. The councilman’s office also lends tables and chairs.

Said Curcio. “It really was such a fun day!”
