Bring your family, friends and neighbors to downtown Edmonds for this traditional good old fashioned community 4th of July. Come early for the always fun 5K run/walk, then stay for a lively fun-packed day and evening with two patriotic parades, fantastic food, music, dancing and fireworks!
Get your “An Edmonds kind of 4th” off and running with the “Beat Brackett 5K” family-friendly run/walk! Join other runners, walkers, kids of all ages and parents with strollers and chase ol’ man George Brackett, the founder of Edmonds, through the downtown streets to the finish line. For even more fun, decorate one of the ol’ man Brackett beards that will be distributed, and wear it during the race!
Nothing says 4th of July like a patriotic community parade! Sit back and enjoy two parades for the price of one at the “An Edmonds kind of 4th” celebration, or show your community spirit and bring your family, business or organization out to march in one of the parades.
New this year is a parade theme, which is “Edmonds – small town, big heart,” and participants are encouraged to incorporate the theme into their decorations.
Register for the Children’s Parade in the IGA parking lot – 5th Ave S. and Howell St. – from 10:15 a.m.-11:10 a.m. Parade begins at 11:30 a.m. The Children’s Parade welcomes local kids and families in their best red, white and blue holiday costumes, along with decorated bikes, scooters, strollers and wagons! Awards for “Best Bike/Scooter,” “Best Wagon/ Stroller,” “Most Patriotic,” and “Most Original.”
*Please no pets, motorized or battery operated vehicles or propaganda in the staging area of parade route.
