The Frisco Fabulous 4th of July parade is a laid back way to celebrate Independence Day. The parade starts at 12:30pm on July 4th on Frisco’s Main Street beginning at Madison Avenue and Main Street and heading east (towards the Frisco Bay Marina). You’ll likely see whacky floats, beautiful horses, classic cars, hundreds of kids on decorated bikes… all with a backdrop of mountains in every direction. If you are looking for a classic July 4th parade in a quintessential mountain town, then Frisco is the place for you. And the day doesn’t begin or end with the parade- check out our full schedule of 4th of July events.
The 4th of July Parade is a great way to support the community and there is no entry fee. Online registration for the 2018 Frisco Independence Day parade is will open in April 2018. Day of registration will begin on the July 4 at 11:00am in the parking lot on the west side of Town Hall.
The parade will begin promptly at 12:30pm. Participants should be lined up on Madison Avenue north of Main Street by 12:15pm (you may begin to line up as early as 10:15am on July 4). Insider hint– it is often easier to lineup by approaching from Creekside Drive as the parade does backup onto Creekside Drive pre-parade and Main Street can become quite busy.
IMPORTANT-Once you are lined up, please check in at parade registration at the 10×10 tent located in the Town Hall parking lot at the corner of Main Street and Madison Avenue. Here you will sign waivers and receive your parade # which qualifies you for parade judging and prizes.
Spectator safety is major concern during the parade. As a parade participant you are required to use extreme caution when throwing candy or giveaways from your float. Best practice would be to hand candy to spectators (not throw) and this practice is strongly encouraged. If you choose to throw candy, then do not throw candy in such a way which encourages children to run into the street to pick it up candy.
In an effort to keep the Town of Frisco streets and sidewalks clean, no participant of the parade shall throw, cast or drop confetti, decorative items or articles of trash during the parade. Any violation of this could result in a $500 clean up fee.
