Annual Quincy Flag Day Parade & Celebration
The ceremonies and fireworks will take place at Pageant Field. There will be refreshments provided by ice cream and water bottle throughout the evening.
Started over 60 years ago by Koch Club founder, the late Richard J. Koch, the Quincy Flag Day parade is the longest-running parade of its kind in the nation. Each year on the Saturday closest to Flag Day (June 14th), the City of Quincy pays tribute to Old Glory with the Quincy Flag Day Parade & Celebration.
The celebration portion of the evening held at Pageant Field following the parade consists of a flag raising of an impressive 30' x 60' version of Old Glory, a fly-over, a patriotic medley, presentation of awards to the parade grand marshal and the recipient of the Richard J. Koch Youth Service award capped off by a dazzling 30 minute fireworks display over Black's Creek.
The 1.2 mile parade begins at the intersection of Coddington and Hancock Streets and proceeds north on Hancock Street to Merrymount Parkway, disbanding at Pageant Field.
The parade is capped off by a fireworks display over Blacks Creek.
The parade includes Marching bands, drum and bugle corps, military bands, color guards, fancy cars and antique vehicles - this parade's got it all! And let's not forget the flag - thousands of them, being waved by the marching youngsters.
A can't miss Quincy tradition, this is the longest running Flag Day parade in the country!
