Agents Serve Up Sunshine on Fourth of July


In the early morning hours of July 4, 2016, Mother Nature put on a fabulous fireworks show — one that was not scheduled on any local “Events” calendar — complete with torrential downpours. But to no one’s dismay, she was gracious enough to take her impressive display elsewhere, just in time for the start of the 2016 Park Cities Fourth of July Parade — one of Dallas’ largest and most popular Fourth of July gatherings. Parade marshals and vendors breathed a collective sigh of relief as the last raindrops fell, then frantically began setting up for the post-parade festivities in Goar Park. Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate was among those relieved vendors. Their 20+ year tradition of serving the people of the Park Cities through the annual Lemonade Stand would indeed continue!

Though the skies never cleared, the lingering cloud cover helped keep things cool. As did the nearly 2,000 cups of lemonade Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate agents handed out. The popular go-to thirst-quencher did a brisk business from parade-goers throughout the morning.

As always, the delicious lemonade was supplied by Top Shelf Beverage. But we put a new spin on the event this year by also giving away 500 flying discs branded with our logo. (Be sure to catch one as they fly through your neighborhood.)  Meanwhile, at the other end of Goar Park, The Rhodes Group conducted dozens of watermelon-eating contests.
