Independence Day Parade

Presented By:

You are invited to Celebrate Concord…Family, Community and Business at our

33rd Annual Independence Day Parade.

Get a good seat along the parade route to watch Concord Celebrate its diverse and incredible community from its classic cars, unique floats, dance troops, dancing horses, and marching bands. This year’s parade is sponsored by Marathon, and will kick off at 10am.

This year’s theme is Celebrating Friendship, as Concord is celebrating 50 years of friendship with our Sister City, Kitakami, Japan.

So cheer loudly for your favorite entry and let the parade participants know how much you enjoy their performance. The winners will be judged and announced by the Concord City Council at a future council meeting.

We look forward to seeing your patriotic spirit and support of the Concord community!
