Honoring Chris Reed
This Fourth of July, the City of Nassau Bay would like to honor Chris Reed and his family. Our former City Manager, neighbor, and friend Chris did so much for Nassau Bay, and our community, and his untimely death leaves a huge void. When you reach the Reed house along the parade route, we hope you will grab a flag from one of our stationed volunteers – we kindly ask you carry that flag to David Braun Park as a symbolic pledge to continue the community service that Chris started. Let's all help carry his legacy a bit farther! For more information, please contact Stacey Amdur at email@example.com.
Food Vendors @ 4:00pm
There will be something for everyone before and after the parade! Join us at David Braun Park beginning at 4:00pm for tasty food truck options. These food vendors will be at the park until 9:00pm!
