There's nothing extravagant about the Spicewood and Highland Lakes Lions Club Fourth of July Parade and Picnic, and that's its charm.

On July 4, participants line up at the Spicewood Post Office, 121 Spur 191, at 8:30 AM on four wheels, two wheels, hooves, and their own two feet for a true small-town Independence Day parade. Fire engines, antique cars, golf carts, bicycles, horses — if it moves, it's welcome.

The parade gets rolling at 9 AM down Spur 191 past the elementary school and library before taking a left on County Road 404 and stopping at the Spicewood Community Center for a picnic.

If you're watching the parade, be sure to bring your own seat.

The picnic is 10-11:30 AM and features free food and refreshments, live music, a number of presentations, face painting for the kids, and plenty of visiting. Everyone is welcome.

And since it wraps up before noon, you have the rest of the day to decide which Highland Lakes fireworks display you want to view that night.
