Independence Day parade, water fight are fun-filled traditions in Indian Hills was created by CanyonCourier

The sirens blare and excitement builds.


It’s July 4 in Indian Hills, and all the people lining the length of Parmalee Gulch Road know what’s coming: all-out war. In the small mountain community, the traditional Independence Day parade quickly morphs into a community-wide water fight.

Although the parade has been going for decades, Indian Hills Fire Chief Emery Carson said the water fight hasn’t always been a part of it. In fact, it was a chance occurrence that’s since become tradition.

“One person started squirting. … It just has grown (since then),” Carson said.

Sarah Gumina and her family came from Aspen Park for the annual parade. ...“It was amazing,” she said. “I don’t think I’ve ever laughed that hard in my life.”
