We are looking for a few good men, women, boys and girls, from all over the Miami Valley!
Join us in celebrating America’s birthday by being a part of the July 4th Parade to be held in Troy on Monday, July 4th. Build a float, decorate a bicycle and ride in the parade, drive your antique vehicle or gather your club or group and walk down the streets of Troy. Show you pride in being an American by showing your patriotism. FREEDOM ISN’T FREE!Help us thank and honor our military both past and present for making our country what it is today. Help us make this parade an enjoyable family event. Wear your red, white, and blue, wave your flag and line the streets along the parade route. Information about the parade can be obtained by phoning Linda Shuman at 339-4338.
The parade route this year will begin at Hobart Arena, head east down Staunton, south onto N. Market, go around the square backwards, then west down Main St. where it will end at Monroe St.
DUE TO CONSTRUCTION ON THE MARKET STREET BRIDGE, SPECTATORS WILL BE UNABLE TO VIEW THE PARADE FROM THE BRIDGE THIS YEAR DUE TO SAFETY CONCERNS. WE APPRECIATE YOUR COOPERATION WITH THIS.
We also appreciate any and all donations to help make this parade possible. Please help us continue to organize this parade and make it bigger and better each year. Donations can be sent to IDCA, 3980 Horseshoe Bend Road, Troy, Ohio 45373 or by donating on our website and selecting the 4th of July fund.
Our committee has pledged to continue the tradition of the Independence Day Parade. This parade will be executed RAIN or SHINE! We much prefer shine, but the fight for Freedom doesn’t stop because of inclement weather and neither will we. Join the parade or line the streets and show us your support. All designated contributions will be used for the organization of this parade. And, most importantly of all: hold your head up high and be proud to be a citizen of the greatest country in the world! See you on July 4th!
