COVID-19 didn't stop Webster Groves from celebrating the 4th of July this year! Though the annual parade was canceled due to health concerns, the city got creative with the advent of a "reverse parade."

Businesses and homes decorated their exteriors in red, white and blue over the holiday weekend in hopes of taking home prizes in four categories.

The winning addresses were:

  • Most Patriotic — 8989 Big Bend Blvd.
  • Best Business — Nehring Design, 8707 Big Bend Blvd.
  • Best Lighting — 11 Marshal Place
  • Most Creative — 400 E. Lockwood Ave.

Take a look at some of the fantastic entries below! If you have a photo you'd like to share with us from the reverse parade, email it to us at and we'll add it to our gallery!
