Float Information

The Wakefield Independence Day Committee is putting out a call for floats for this year’s Independence Day parade, which will be held on July 4th at 4:30 p.m., rain or shine.

Our theme for the parade is Olympian Pride!!! Get those thinking caps on!

Any nonprofit civic, social, youth, or veterans’ organizations from Wakefield or surrounding communities can enter the parade. There will be a cash prize for winners.

The WIDC can work with non-profits to help pay for the building of a float if necessary.  Please email info@julyparade.org if interested.

Businesses are also encouraged to enter a float in the parade!
