If you're holding a nine-day long birthday party, it might stand to reason that other "ordinary" celebrations might be larger, as well.

Such is the case this year with Lockport's Independence Day parade and fireworks.

This year's parade, which starts at 6 p.m. Friday, has 52 units scheduled — a dozen more than last year's parade. While oftentimes, larger parade units charge a fee or stipend for their participation, this year's parade is being put on without costing the city a dime.

The parade will travel north on Locust Street from Lockport High School to Walnut Street, ending at the location of the City of Lockport All Star Jam, a concert being put on by the Sesquicentennial Celebration Committee thanks to a grant from the Grigg-Lewis Foundation. The 7 p.m. concert, actually to be located on Elm Street, will have food vendors and a beer tent.

Saturday, the city will follow up the parade and concert with a Family Fun Day at Outwater Park from noon to 3 p.m. featuring bounce houses, games and food, all before the annual fireworks display at dusk.

The fireworks will be bigger this year, as well.  The display will offer 10 percent more bang for the buck — literally. The $7,500 cost, however, remains the same as last year.
