Start the holiday by showing your patriotic spirit at the annual Independence Day Parade, held through Historic Downtown Leesburg beginning at 10am. The parade will start at Ida Lee Park, travel down King Street and conclude at Fairfax Street. Put on your patriotic best and join your friends and neighbors to celebrate the birthday of the United States! This year’s parade will also feature the 6th annual Patriot’s Cup Competition, sponsored by the Leesburg Today newspaper. This award will go to the best parade entry; winners’ names will be engraved on the Patriot Cup, which will be on display at Town Hall for the remainder of the year.
Back this year is the American Originals Fife and Drum Corps, sponsored by Toth Financial. This traditional corps adds a patriotic sound to the parade and is a favorite among parade viewers. The group will perform at the intersection of King and Market Street as a prelude to the parade. Plan to arrive downtown by 9:45am to hear the fife and drums before the parade kicks off.
If you are interested in participating in the parade, entry is free! Applications can be downloaded here or contact Ida Lee Park Recreation Center at 703-777-1368 for a hard copy. King Street will close to through-traffic at 9:30am in preparation for the parade. Downtown streets will re-open at approximately 11:30am.
