The city of Kyle is having a birthday celebration at the annual Founders Parade on Saturday, Oct. 9 starting at 10 a.m.
The town of Kyle was platted and the first lots were sold sometime around the 15th of October, 1880. Parades through downtown around the middle of October have been a tradition ever since, recognizing and remembering the founding family.
The parade route will start at Gregg-Clarke Park and travel along Center Street, ending at Front Street on the City Square.
The best locations to view the Kyle Founders Parade are on either side of Center Street between Gregg-Clarke Park and Mary Kyle Hartson City Square Park. To keep everyone safe, the city is asking attendees to stay on sidewalks or grassy areas along Center Street and to not run into the street when the parade is going by. **This is event is weather dependent.**
After the parade, a celebration for the city’s birthday will be held on Burleson Street and will include birthday cupcakes, music and lots of family fun.
