Montclair's annual 4th of July celebrations were canceled due to COVID-19.

At the beginning of June, Montclair resident Gary Ross posted on the neighborhood Facebook page to gauge interest among homeowners in a possible classic car parade.

From there, the "Montclair Hot Wheels Parade" was born. The event took place at 10 a.m. on Saturday, July 4.

Montclair residents and local car enthusiasts met in the parking lot of the Montclair Property Owners' Association office and were led through the neighborhood by the local volunteer fire department.

Residents young and old lined the streets to enjoy the parade. After two loops of Waterway Drive, the Hot Wheels Parade parked in the Food Lion parking lot so participants and residents could admire the local "hot wheels."
