All the Photos From the Northside Fourth of July 'House Float' Festival

While last year's beloved Northside Fourth of July parade  was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic, this year, the fest shifted from the traditional parade and carnival format to a safer approach: Neighbors transformed their homes into stationary floats — sort of like the ScareCoronas art show from this past spring — and folks could meander the streets on walking routes to view them. Additionally, there were passport stickers for children and small block parties throughout Northside. A jury decided winners in a variety of categories including best in show,  best yard, best porch, most unique theme, most Northside pride and more. Here's a little glimpse of the festive Northside magic.
