The Wedgwood Neighborhood Parade is an annual tradition that marks the beginning of the marching band’s parade season. This festive event is a beloved staple in the community, bringing together residents of all ages to celebrate with music, camaraderie, and sweet treats. The parade, featuring the vibrant and spirited performances of the local marching band, weaves through the streets of the neighborhood, filling the air with lively tunes and the infectious energy of the musicians.

As the parade procession concludes, the Wedgwood Community Church opens its doors to host the much-anticipated Ice Cream Social. This event, sponsored by the church, is not just about indulging in delicious ice cream but also about fostering a sense of community and togetherness. Neighbors gather to enjoy a variety of ice cream flavors, toppings galore, and the chance to mingle and create lasting memories.
