A Parade of Wheels was held at Lowell School (No. 43) Playground on July 16, 1959. The parade was just one of many activities held at playgrounds throughout the city of Scranton. 
Children brought all sorts of items that are on wheels - bicycles, tricycles, wheelbarrow and a pony-drawn carriage - for the parade.
