4th of July Celebration
The City of Bridgeton and the City of Bridgeton Special Events Commission invites you to join us for our annual July 4th Parade. NO ENTRY FEE!
America, Let’s Celebrate! is the theme of Bridgeton’s annual 4th of July parade. Break out your red, white, and blue and honor special Americans and everything that makes up this great nation (i.e., military personnel, charitable organizations, national monuments, states, sports teams, etc.). This year’s winning float will be awarded a $250.00 cash prize, and costume winners will be awarded a $25 gift card. So be creative! Entry forms will be available at the Bridgeton Recreation Center starting mid-March.
We welcome floats, walking groups, marching bands, garage bands, musical groups, and neighbors who want to participate and be a part of our Bridgeton tradition. To be eligible for a trophy, participants must adhere to the parade theme or honor special Americans and anything that makes up this great nation. Entry forms must be turned in to the Bridgeton Recreation Center no later than Monday, June 17, 2019*.
Note: There is absolutely no alcohol consumption allowed in the parade procession.
The parade begins at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday July 4th. Please plan accordingly for the summer heat. We will do our best to provide water for marching participants throughout the parade; however it is important to remind your participants to hydrate themselves.
Participants line up no later than 9:00 a.m. along Benedetta and Avery Lane. The parade will launch on Benedetta, turn on to Tideland, turn on Majella then on to Natural Bridge, ending at Target. For your convenience we are enclosing an entry form. There is no entry fee.
