Fourth of July Parades in El Paso
If you’re looking to celebrate the Fourth of July with a good old-fashioned parade of beauty queens, dignitaries, decorated cars, and people in patriotic costumes and gear waving to the crowd, a couple of local service organizations have you covered on both ends of the city.
● 37th Annual Fourth of July People’s Parade – The yearly Eastside community parade travels down Montwood and Yarbrough from its starting point of Hanks High School, then north to Album Avenue, where it ends at Eastwood (Album) Park. Sponsored by the El Paso del Norte Lions Club, “The People’s Parade” begins at 9 a.m.
● The 21st Annual Independence Day Parade – the Rotary Club of West El Paso plays host to the patriotic procession. Parade participants will roll out from the Western Hills Methodist Church parking lot at 530 Thunderbird, turning left onto Thunderbird, then left at Shadow Mountain before turning right onto Mesa to its conclusion at Coronado High School. The parade begins at 9 a.m. This year’s theme is “Salute to Freedom.”
