The first-ever Lake Highlands Exchange Club Parade was held in 1987, based on the memory and notes of past club president Ray Hill. Notes from his 1990 presidency read, “For the third year in a row the Exchange Club of Lake Highlands is co-sponsoring the Lake Highlands Community Independence Day Parade.”

Hill says they “co-sponsored” with Dallas Park and Recreation and ReMax Realtors. Here are a few photos from the parade’s early days.
