The Bocce Club of Chestnut Hill’s annual Fourth of July celebration attracted hundreds of parents and kids to the Water Tower yesterday for a bike parade, pony rides, races, a magic show and more. The festivities kicked off at 9 a.m. with the always colorful bike parade. Contestants earned prizes and everyone got a free event t-shirt.
