Tumwater 4th of July Parade: July 4th

(Capitol Blvd. Tumwater, WA 98501)

Enjoy the fireworks and some fun extras at Tumwater’s Independence Day Parade! This year the theme is, “Heart of a Champion,” and it begins at 11AM. This time, don’t just watch the parade form the sidelines get in it! Tumwater Parks and Recreation is seeking entries for the parade and vehicles (as well as their owners!) to escort dignitaries in the parade. If you have a convertible, they’d love for you to be an escort driver. If you are interested, call Tumwater Parks & Recreation for a parade entry packet or escort vehicle application.
