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 costume waving to the crowd, a couple of local service organizations have you covered on both ends of the city.
● 36th Annual Del Norte 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. The parade begins at 9 a.m. This year’s theme is “America the Beautiful”
● The 19th Annual El Paso Independence Day Parade – the Rotary Club of West El Paso will play host to the once-a-year Westside 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 “Fly Your American Flag”
● The 18th annual Rim Area Neighborhood Parade travels down Rim Road from Kerbey Street to Upper Tom Lea Park and features decorated bicycles, classic cars and people and pets dressed in red, white and blue. If you want to join in, meet at the corner of Rim Road and Kerbey Street at 9:45 for the 10 a.m. start.
