AUSTINTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Austintown Township has events planned for the Fourth of July this year.

Activities kick off at 8:30 a.m. Sunday, July 2.

At Austintown Plaza, there will be a bounce house, a chance to dunk Trustee Robert Santos, and music starting at 5 p.m.

Then, on the Fourth of July, the township is hosting its 44th annual Fourth of July parade at noon.

The parade will start its trip at Highway Tabernacle Church and end at Fitch High School.

Activities include for the first time ever, a “Quiet Zone” from Fitzgerald Road to Burkey Road for sensory accessibility and inclusion so children can feel comfortable and enjoy watching the parade. The parade will also include a variety of floats.

In regard to the “Quiet Zone,” candy will still be passed out, just no crowd noise and no sirens, marching band or parade participants’ music to disrupt those with sensitivities.
