Independence Day Parade 7/4/24

Fourthflyer-1 web smallMark your calendars because we’re planning our annual Fourth of July Parade! You’ll definitely want to be in the “Heart of the Region” this Independence Day as we continue our tradition of bringing together families, friends, and neighbors to celebrate the holiday.
We’re looking for businesses and organizations interested in participating in the parade, which starts at 11 a.m. July 4. The parade route travels from the Dean and Barbara White Community Center, 6600 Broadway, and heads south to 80th Place. New this year, the town will have the community choose which parade participants will be named as the winners. Voting will be conducted online the day of the parade.

It’s free to participate in the parade, so make sure to get involved to promote your organization.

In addition to participants, we're also seeking sponsors for our amazing event.
