Enumclaw will be celebrating Independence Day with the 15th annual Stars and Stripes celebration.

Presented by the local Chamber of Commerce, Saturday begins with breakfast, continues with a mid-day parade and concludes with fireworks.

The Fourth of July gets rolling with a free breakfast for the Enumclaw community, served from 8 to 11 a.m. at the Senior Center on Cole Street. The Enumclaw Rotary Club is again sponsoring the meal.

At noon, the traditional Stars and Stripes parade rolls south along Cole Street. In keeping with Enumclaw custom, children are invited to decorate their bicycles, tricycles, scooters and wagons and join the list of entries. Everyone taking part in the parade should meet at 11 a.m. at the corner of Washington Avenue and Railroad Street.

To wrap up the day, everyone is encouraged to pack a picnic basket and grab their lawn chairs or blankets and head to the fireworks display. The sky should light up about 9:45 p.m. with fireworks launched from the Southwood Elementary School field.
