This Year's Theme: "Celebrating 70 years of Spirit & Tradition"

Welcome to the official web site of the 70th Annual 4th of July Parade. The 2017 edition is shaping up to be yet another GREAT Parade.  In addition to our regular parade, we have obtained a Shriners Point Parade which means all regional Shrine units will be in our parade. In addition, our YMCA will be celebrating their 150th Anniversary & also plan on being part of our parade. So this year’s parade promises to be the best around & each year draws over 20,000 people. If you have a marching band, drum Corps, a float, a twirling corps, drill or dance team, have a color guard, marching unit or are a volunteer organization or Veterans unit WE WANT YOU!! Warren, Pa is the only place to be on the 4th of July. 

The Parade begins @ 11:00 AM & the very popular pre parade show starts @ 9:30 AM @ the Reviewing stand. Our Forming area opens @ 8:00 AM @ the YMCA on Lexington Avenue on the east side of Warren. Please fill out the registration form below to register.
