TEMPLETON — Three-legged races, tables filled with food and decked out in red, white, and blue, kids playing, small fireworks going off and sparklers twinkling in tiny hands — this is not just a figment of the imagination, this slice of Americana can still be found in Templeton during its Fourth of July parade, pancake breakfast and daylong community events in the park.

The Templeton Kiwanis Club hosts the parade beginning at 10 a.m., the Templeton Fire Department hosts the breakfast from 7 to 9:30 a.m. and this year the Templeton Chamber of Commerce is lending its expertise to help the Kiwanis plan the events in the park and take parade entrees.
