This is an open invitation for you to join us as we once again march in the 4th of July Parade in Ashland!
The parade theme for this year is “Celebrating 50-years of Friendship.”
The 2019 4th of July Celebration is honoring the 50-years of Sister City friendship between Guanajuato, Mexico and Ashland, Oregon.
We are excited to honor this lifelong friendship between two cities and two countries marked by the people-to-people connections that embrace peace, understanding and acceptance of different cultures and ways of life without judgment, but with joy in honoring our differences and sharing our common values. Ashland is built upon relationships with one another and friendship is at the forefront of this historic relationship.
This year we will gather at the Southern Oregon University parking lot, lot #36, on South Mountain Avenue across the street from the SOU Music Recital Hall.
We are entry #25 and will line up on Row B.
New this year, there will be limited parking available for parade participants on the SOU campus on the Music Recital Hall (east) side of South Mountain Ave. Please note that there will be street closures throughout Ashland beginning as early as 6:00 a.m. so plan accordingly.
We will begin gathering at 8:00 a.m. and all participants must be lined up and ready to march by 9:15 a.m. The parade begins at 10:00 a.m.
