Dunnings AS Aug 12-Sept 12 2019

Homewood Fourth of July parade canceled. In his weekly video update, Homewood Mayor Richard Hofeld announced Friday that the traditional Independence Day parade has been canceled. The parade typically attracts thousands of participants and spectators, who line Ridge Road for the event. "We don't want to take any chances with people in the crowds or in the parade standing next to one another," Hofeld said. "The main thing is, stay well. We'll get through this." The decision is consistent with current state emergency orders that limit gatherings to 10 or fewer people.
