More than 30 children participated in the annual 4th of July Bike Parade on Thursday on the track behind Destin Elementary School.

They came in strollers and wagons and on scooters and bicycles sporting their stars and stripes with streamers flying as they paraded around the track behind Destin Elementary School off Kelly Street on July 1.
