About the July 4th Parade

When is the Garrett Hill Parade?
This year, the Garrett Hill Parade will be Tuesday, July 4, 2017.

I heard that Clem Macrone is getting a make-over.  Will the parade still start and end at Clem Macrone this year?

Yes!  The planned updates to Clem Macrone park are scheduled to be complete July 4, so we are hoping to be there.  Rest assured if we cannot have it at Clem Macrone, we will be holding at Emlen Tunnell Park.  Either way the Parade will be happening!

When does the Garrett Hill Parade start?

Opening ceremonies of the parade is at 10:45 a.m. at Clem Macrone Park.  However, if you would like to register your child's bike or small float in the parade, registration is from 9:30a.m. - 10:00, with judging to begin at 10:00a.m.  For a full schedule of events, click here.

What time do we need to be at the Rosemont Business Campus for the judging?

What is the Parade loop?
The Parade starts at Clem Macrone Park, and travels down Lowry's Lane, Lancaster Avenue, Garrett, Williams, Lewis, Rockingham and then back to Clem Macrone Park.
