On Monday, July 4, 2016 at 9:00 a.m., the Dunwoody Homeowners Association and the Dunwoody Crier Newspaper will host the annual Dunwoody 4th of July Parade featuring marching bands, floats, clowns, animal units and local celebrities. Last year the parade attracted over 2,500 participants and 32,000 spectators in Dunwoody!
Every year, thousands of Dunwoody residents participate in or watch the Dunwoody 4th of July parade as it makes its way through our community. Organizations, businesses, churches, schools and individuals build floats, decorate cars, dress in costumes, ride bikes, pull kids in wagons, play music and wave flags as we celebrate our heritage and honor those who have sacrificed to keep us free. It seems as if everyone wants to join in the celebration. Kids of all ages share the excitement and patriotic spirit on this enduring national holiday.
This year’s theme is Duty Honor & Country.
Please join the community after the Dunwoody 4th of July Parade in front of the US Post Office in Dunwoody Village for family fun and great food.
