South Ardmore Betterment Alliance (SABA)
The annual South Ardmore Independence Day celebration will take place on Thursday, July 4th!
Bring your children, nieces, nephews, grandkids, and of course, your neighbors.
Our event begins with a parade of bikes, strollers and wagons decked out in red, white and blue.
We will depart from Chestnutwold Elementary at 10am, led by fire trucks from the Merion and Oakmont Fire Companies.
From the school we will proceed up Belmont Avenue, turning right on Pont Reading and then left on Morris, before continuing to Elwell Field at the intersection of Ardmore and Morris Avenues.
There, kids can participate in field events, compete in the “best-decorated” contest, get temporary tattoos, and play with plastic gimp string. If you’re hot, get wet under The Big Splash! If you’re hungry, hot dogs, pretzels, baked goods, and cold drinks will be available for purchase.
Our annual neighborhood yard sale will be on Saturday, May 18 from 8:00 am to 12:00 noon.
