Kiddie Parade

More than 100 babies, toddlers and kids rode their trikes, bikes and scooters, or hitched a ride in a wagon or stroller Monday night.

Family Night

Despite the unfriendly temperatures, hundreds of parents and kids participated in nail painting, hat making, coloring and dancing activities Monday night. Kidsdance performed until families settled on the grass to watch "The Smurfs" on an inflatable, big-screen.

Car Show

The heat kept attendance low Tuesday afternoon, however, a Richfield resident took home a trophy for his classic car.

Street Dance

The air was thick with humidity and the smell of mini donuts, corn dogs, roasted corn and beer as a diverse crowd descended on Veterans Memorial Park Tuesday night to socialize and hear The Rockin' Hollywoods perform another year.


Politicians, organizations, marching bands, city ambassadors, jugglers and more participated in the annual parade Wednesday afternoon.


The crowd oohed and aahed as the 30-minute-long presentation, sponsored by Best Buy, shot beautiful colors across the night sky.

Richfield Ambassador Coronation

The 2011 Richfield Ambassadors and Junior Ambassadors handed the reigns over to five young ladies Thursday night.
