Annual Independence Day returns to Laurel

June 29, 2017 by  

The Laurel 4th of July Celebration is returning to the city next month.

The celebration will be filled with lots of fun activities that should appeal to people of all ages.

The day will start off with the 39th annual Independence Day parade at 11:00 AM. It will begin at 6th and Montgomery. It will be filled with marching bands, community groups, local businesses, and plenty of flags.

The majority of the events will be taking place at Granville Gude Park. There is set to be a horseshoe contest and a hot dog eating contest. Arts and craft and food vendors will be on hand to sell their wares.

One of the popular activities for the day will be the car show. It will take place from 12:00 to 4:00 pm and will feature lots of antique and classic cars. Registration, which will take place on Mulberry Street, is $15 per vehicle. The first 70 cars will receive dash plaques and the 25 most popular cars will receive awards that will be presented later in the day.

There will also be music from Oracle, field events such as corn hole, and a firework display over the lake. Flyers will likely be distributed in Laurel to advertise this popular annual event.

The 4th of July Celebration will take place on July 1. Call 301-725-5300 x2444 to learn more.
