22nd Annual 4th of July Parade in Roland Park

Come help us celebrate in our beloved annual Roland Park 4th of July Parade, which is now in its 22nd year. The festivities will begin at 10 am on Thursday, July 4th with a reading from the Declaration of Independence on the library steps. The parade will start in front of the library and proceed south down Roland Avenue, led by our local fire truck to the intersection at Upland Road. There will be ice pops for everyone and, if history is a guide, the firefighters will hook up a hose to the hydrant to cool us all down. The Roland Park Presbyterian Church will once again open its doors to offer bathrooms, water and air conditioning for those who need to cool down. Please join us in your brightest and boldest red, white and blue regalia, and be sure to decorate your bikes, strollers and pets!
