The Annual Independence Day Parade sponsored by the New Fairfield Lions Club. We invite you to participate in this longstanding New Fairfield tradition honoring our country. Ask your family and friends to attend and join in our celebration to show our support for those who have defended our freedom in the past as well as the present.
The theme of this year's parade is “Foundation of Freedom”. What better way to celebrate our Independence than to showcase the very freedoms we all enjoy but may take for granted.
We want to get signups confirmed early to make our planning and your experience much easier. Awards will again be given in the following areas:
-- Best theme
-- Best float
-- Best marching unit
-- Largest group
-- Lion President's Award
All participants are asked to assemble at Route 37 and Overbrook Drive between 7:30 - 9:00 am.
The parade will follow its traditional route to Memorial field where the ceremonies will be conducted, and refreshments will follow. A bus will provide transportation from the Board of Education building, across from town hall, to the beginning of the parade route. The bus will begin making trips to Overbrook beginning at 7:30am.
We highly encourage ALL groups to use the bus or walk to Overbrook.
