Independence Day Parade: Monday, July 4 at 1PM

Message from the Sudbury Chamber of Commerce:

 

The Sudbury Chamber of Commerce 4th of July Parade Committee is happy to announce that the Parade is back on for 2022.  After a two year pandemic hiatus we would like to welcome everyone back.

This year’s theme “Sudbury Salutes HEROES, HELPERS and ESSENTIAL WORKERS” is in honor of and to thank all the people whose service(s) were fundamental to maintaining the wellbeing of our community during the pandemic.  

Let’s gather as a community and make this parade the best in years with floats, banners and celebrations to show our gratitude and salute our hometown heroes. To name a few: Teachers, school nurses and administration. Doctors, nurses, administration and support staff at local facilities and hospitals. Town workers and administration. Grocery and retail store employees. Firefighters, Paramedics, Police Officers, and Postal Workers to name a few.  I am sure there are plenty more to add.  

The Parade starts at 1:00 on Monday, July 4th.  Like in years past, the parade will line up at Chiswick Park.  We ask that you enter from Route 20, (GPS address is 490 Boston Post Road, Sudbury). Once you are registered, we will send confirmation with directions, your assigned division and a map of the parade route.
