The festivities in Bicentennial Park will begin at 5 p.m. and will include:
  • Live Music
  • Food Vendors
  • Retail, Craft & Activity Vendors
  • All American Kid Contest
  • Fireworks display at dark

  • Parade

    The parade is moving west. The continuing construction on Main Street will impact the traditional parade route, so the course has been modified. The parade will begin at 10 a.m. from the intersection of Eagle Drive and W. Main Street. The parade will continue west down Main Street and turn on S. Oak Street. It will end and disperse at the intersection of S. Oak and  Peach Street. 

    Please avoid parking on Main Street from Eagle Drive to Beverly Street.  Suggested viewing areas include Crowley High School, CISD Administration building and surrounding areas.
