From the Bel Air Independence Day Committee, Inc.:
The deadline for applications to join the Bel Air Independence Day Parade has been extended to June 20, the Bel Air Independence Day Committee announced Monday.
The committee still seeks more floats, marching units, antique cars, and comic/novelty acts to join the area’s biggest and best 4th of July celebration! Local businesses and organizations can be part of the fun as well, with their own entry appearing in front of tens of thousands lining the parade route through downtown Bel Air.
The theme for 2011 is “Three Cheers for the Red, White and Blue,” and entrants are encouraged to decorate or craft their entry to illustrate or embody that theme.
“We’ve been hearing from a lot of organizations that they still need a few days to get their plans together, so we decided to help them by extending the deadline to Monday, June 20,” said parade chairman Michael Blum.
