Organizers say the popular event attracts thousands of residents each year. This year's special theme is "Happy Birthday."

Planners are seeking businesses, community associations, marching bands, and civic organizations to participate in the 1-mile parade that starts at 9 a.m. on July 4.

Registration forms are available at City Hall at 6000 54th Ave. N. There are no registration fees to march in the parade.
