A long-lost Hilltop tradition will be back with a bang the first weekend in October. The Uptown on the Hilltop Parade was a yearly event in the Hilltop for many generations, but ended in 2000 due to a lack of funds.
“I’m proud to announce that we’re bringing back a Hilltop tradition,” said State Representative Dan Stewart (25-D).
The parade, which always occurs in the fall, largely serves as a stage for elected officials, as well as candidates in the upcoming election. Several neighborhood organizations also play a part.
According to Stewart, this shines a spotlight on the Hilltop that it doesn’t get at any other time of the year.
