For many years Pack 197 joins Westerville Independence Day Parade to celebrate our country’s birthday. Organizers (Rotary Club of Westerville) expect about 10,000 people to watch the parade, roughly a quarter of the population of Westerville.
A group of parents had built an enormous pinewood derby car float. It is outfitted with soap bubble making machines and tray for giveaway candy.
Scouts had a great time parading down State Street!
In 2017 float was expanded to include a huge 15 foot pinewood derby ramp with the 4 x 8 foot car on top. For safety reasons, no-one is allowed to ride on the float.
