The Town of Merrimack's Annual 4th of July Parade is organized by the Parks & Recreation Department and is one of the larger Independence Day Parades in the State of New Hampshire. The 4th of July Parade features a wide range of bands, militia units, clowns, local businesses and much more. We would like to invite you to join us in this year's parade on Wednesday, July 4th. 

Participating can be as easy as putting a flag and a sign on your vehicle and just riding along or can be a highly decorated float. It is a great way to show your patriotism and get some free advertising for your business or organization at the same time! We want the parade to be a fun, family friendly event for all to enjoy and the more local groups that participate, the better! Children of all ages are invited to participate in the 4th of July parade by decorating their bicycle, wagon or stroller.  your entry has a patriotic theme to it.There is no cost to participate.  

The Parade begins at the Commons Shopping Plaza (Tractor Supply) travels south down Daniel Webster Highway. It then takes a right onto Baboosic Lake Road and travels past Mastricola School and then takes a left onto O'Gara Drive. The parade concludes at Merrimack High School. The entire route is 1.5 miles long.
