Everyone loves a parade! Wear your Red, White & Blue and join us in downtown Arlington for the annual Arlington
4th of July Parade which starts at 9:00. Look at the
parade route online. We've done this for several years and it's great fun for kids and adults. Dogs on leashes welcome too! Bring your stadium chair, cold water, a hat, camera, and sunscreen. We like to watch the parade in from a specific spot b/c it's got some shade. We will be on the East side of Center Street facing the back side of the Levitt Stage. That's the 200 block, between Abram and South btw. When/Where to find us:
8:15ish - Drop off chairs/coolers on Center St to hold our spot
8:20ish - Coffee Haus for ice coffee and pastries (or other yummy choices)
9:00ish - Watch parade with great friends (our spot is about halfway through parade route)
11:30ish - Lunch at J Gilligans or Fuzzy's Tacos (cold beer and great A/C at both) All of these are walking distance from each other! Quick reminder: several roads will be closed for the parade. Also, several are one-way, SO PLAN AHEAD for getting there on time and finding the group! Try parking at the church just South of Levitt or in the lots on the North side of Abram so you're close to the parade, Coffee Haus, J Gilligan's and Fuzzy's!
Coffee Haus Downtown is on Mesquite between Abram and South
J Gilligan's is on Abram, three blocks East of the parade
Fuzzy's Taco is on Abram, four blocks East of the parade Event is weather-dependant of course!
