Arlington 4th of July Parade

July 4, 2014

The Arlington 4th of July Association proudly organizes an outstanding and widely respected parade each Independence Day in and around downtown Arlington, Texas.

This Association is a non-profit, non-partisan, and nonpolitical organization that may not be used as a vehicle for any social, commercial or political purpose. It is staffed entirely by conscientious volunteer members of the local community with the goal of promoting the celebration of USA’s Independence Day via a parade. You may refer to our “Theme” and “Dedication” areas of our web site for more information regarding the history of the parade.

The parade is an annual event and consists of generally 150 entries. The number of spectators over the years has ranged from of 5,000 to 70,000. Parade entries include marching bands to exotic automobiles, military color guards to clowns, and dignitaries to unique presentations. Of course, the parade has a distinguished assortment of floats. Some floats are professionally built, but many are the proud results of individual ingenuity by local organizations and businesses. There is even an Award Ceremony after the parade at Heritage Park, 201 W. Front Street at 1 pm to recognize excellence within each of several categories. Refer to our rules and regulations for a complete list of categories.

We hope that you will join us for the 49th annual parade on Thursday, July 4th at 9:00 a.m., for the 2014 edition of USA’s Independence Day Parade in downtown Arlington.
