INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Neighborhoods and communities across central Indiana celebrated the Fourth of July on Friday, including the kids in the Northern Estates neighborhood on the city’s northwest side.

Neighbors said it’s a great way to meet new people and keep crime away.

“Because with people working, you don’t always see everybody and this brings everybody, quite a few out, so every year you see more and more, it gets bigger each year, it’s great,” Marybeth Reynolds said, who has lived in the neighborhood for 8 years.

“I think by everyone coming out collectively and meeting on the street and watching all the pageantry of the little parade is nice and you know, you can start chit-chating with folks and that sort of thing,” Sue Crimson said.

The kids got to ride in red, white and blue wagons, bikes and ATVs. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
