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!
