It's almost the Fourth of July! In addition to being a day to honor and celebrate the country's independence, it can also be a great way to connect with our communities! The marketing team at Military Veterans Resource Center has put together a list of some of the parades and firework displays taking place in the Columbus area this year.
And of course, we will all be starting the day off right running at the Vets Run Free race at the Hilliard YMCA at 8 a.m. on Friday morning!
