Oreland July 4th Parade

Oreland Independence Day

Oreland, Pa. near Willow Grove puts on a 4th of July parade that is right out of the past. Kids and adults line the street with flag waving along the entire route. Our club has a tradition of being part of this parade. Itís great to see that everyone still loves a line of Corvettes. If you like a parade, don't miss this one and being in it is twice as nice.

TIP: For those of you that have never taken part in the parade many folks bring lots of candy to throw out to the children along the parade route. Some people also fix flags onto their Vettes.
WHEN: Thursday, July 4th.

TIME: The parade starts at 10:00 am and ends 12:00 pm.

WHERE: CCDV participants will meet at 9:00 am in the ACME parking lot at 1825 Twinning Rd. and Rt. 152 (Limekiln Pike) in Dresher, PA19025


This is a great parade, draws a huge crowd. As the fire chief in Oreland I will be marching with the Fire Dept., but I would love to see you guys there. I will extend an invitation to all CCDV members to come back to the fire house when you are through the parade for an open house free hot dogs, soda and beer. We normally have a good crowd that goes through about 7 halves of beer in 2 1/2 hours.
Once the end of the parade has passed the fire house we can park Vettes along the road in front of the Fire Dept.

The Acme parking lot is at Twinning Road and Limekiln Pike (152) If you are coming from the VFW post where we hold the meetings continue west on Welsh Road about 2 1/2 miles, Twinning Road comes in on the left side just past the Upper Dublin Shopping Center. If you cross the Turnpike you went too far. Turn left on Twinning. After you cross Susquehanna (1st light) you will go down a long hill, the Acme will be on your right near the bottom of the hill.

Great day and turnout. We had 40 Vettes in the parade.

Also a special thank you to Dan Supplee for the invitation back to the firehouse and free hotdogs and beer.
