Put on your patriotic best and join your friends and neighbors to celebrate the birthday of the United States!
Start the holiday by showing love for our country at the annual Independence Day Parade, held through Historic Downtown Leesburg beginning at 10 am. The parade will start at Ida Lee Park, travel down King Street and conclude at Fairfax Street. This year’s parade will also feature the 10th annual Patriot’s Cup Competition, sponsored by the Loudoun Now newspaper. This award will go to the best parade entry; winners’ names will be engraved on the Patriot Cup, which will be on display at Town Hall for the remainder of the year.
Back this year is the American Originals Fife and Drum Corps, sponsored by Toth Financial. This traditional corps adds a patriotic sound to the parade and is a favorite among parade viewers. The group will perform at the intersection of King and Market Street as a prelude to the parade. Plan to arrive downtown by 9:45 am to hear the fife and drums before the parade kicks off.
