The annual Miami Springs 4th of July Parade will be held Wednesday, July 4th at 10am. This year’s parade route is shortened again and will not start at the traditional Miami Springs Recreation Center. Instead the route will begin on Westward and Esplanade by the Miami Springs Library. The parade will then proceed east along Westward Drive towards the Circle. The route then heads south on Curtiss Parkway and ends at the Miami Springs Golf and Country Club.
If you’re interested in participating in the parade, contact Patti Bradley at the Miami Springs Parks & Recreation Department, 305.805.5075, no later than Thursday, June 28th to reserve a spot. ALL parade participants must be preregistered, no exceptions.
Miami Springs’ classic 4th of July Parade is a beautiful parade that includes dignitaries, classic cars, marching bands, local community groups, specialty vehicles, custom floats, and the annual water gun battles.
The parade starts at 10am at the recreation center (1401 Westward Drive). The parade heads east on Westward Drive to the Circle and then heads south on Curtiss Parkway.
