L.A. Kings Sportscaster to Lead Fourth of July Parade in Westchester

Westchester will celebrate American independence with its 13th annual Fourth of July parade.

Westchester’s Fourth of July parade theme this year will be “A Tribute to America’s Pastimes,” such as baseball, road trips and barbecues, and over 2,000 local participants are expected to march with floats dedicated to American traditions. 

Floats will be judged in three categories: best overall, best in relation to theme and honorable mention.

The parade’s grand marshall will be Bob Miller, Los Angeles Kings sportscaster, who was inducted to the broadcasters’ wing of the Hockey Hall of Fame and also received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

"My greatest fear is that I retire and the Kings win a Stanley Cup the next year," he told the L.A. Times when he was honored in Hollywood in 2006.

Of course, those fears never came true.

The parade will start at 11 a.m. on July 4, beginning at Manchester Boulevard, running down Loyola Boulevard and ending at Loyola Marymount University.
