Onion Creek Celebrating More Than Just Fourth Of July

Onion Creek Celebrating July 4th with the Re-opening of River Plantation Bridge

River Plantation Drive bridge in Onion Creek was heavily damaged during the 2013 Halloween floods. It has now been closed for more than seven months, separating the Onion Creek neighborhood and even some families who live on either side. But this Independence Day marks its grand re-opening.

"When the City gave us a completion date of around July 1, we saw an opportunity to bring our community back together via our annual community-wide parade topped off with a formal ribbon-cutting," says Onion Creek HOA President, Kathy Pillmore.

Today will be Onion Creek’s biggest Fourth of July parade ever with participation from many organizations, clubs, and sponsorships. The Austin Police Department and a unit from the Manchaca Volunteer Fire Department will lead the celebration.

Bill Stagner, an Onion Creek resident who was community’s first-ever head of security, founded the parade back in the 1980’s. This 4th of July parade marks the second Memorial in his honor. He passed away in 2012.
