Timbergrove Tykes on Parade


The grand marshals steal the show in the second annual Timbergrove tykes parade.

Longtime section 5 residents Ms. Jan “Granny Boo” Durham and Ms. Louis Jacob presided over the second annual Timbergrove Tykes Parade in August as Grand Marshals.

Timberkids and furry friends dressed in costume and met in the cul de sac on Drane Ct and processed through Timbergrove escorted by HPD officers Kenneth Bigger and Gary Moran who volunteered their time to keep a safe space for all.

Always a fun crew, event organizers, Jacki Schaefer and Courtnie Hays did an amazing job coordinating this wonderful event. Having flooded in Harvey, Courtnie and her family are grateful to be back amongst their Timbergrove neighbors and feel this event is a great way to get out visit neighbors as well as make new friends.

Residents of all ages watched the parade goers from porches and many joined the procession too. We’re already looking forward to next year!
