The parade is an annual event and consists of generally 160 entries. The number of spectators over the years has ranged around 50,000. 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 46th annual parade on Wednesday, July 4th at 9:00 a.m., for the 2012 edition of USA's Independence Day Parade in downtown Arlington.
