The parade route will remain the same this year. It will proceed west on 4th Street from Holmes Avenue, turn south on Boulevard and end at the intersection of Rogers Street and South Boulevard. (See map link above for details.) Drivers are urged to use caution in this area because of the high volume of pedestrians.
To better facilitate floats entering the parade staging area and lining up for the parade, please avoid using Holmes Avenue between 1st Street and 9th Street between 6 – 9 a.m.
All parking and traffic along the parade route will be restricted.
“No parking” will be implemented along the parade route starting at 4 a.m. on July 4. Any vehicle parked on the parade route at 5 a.m. on July 4 will be towed at the owner’s expense.
