About The Kingsville Independence Day Parade

The Kingsville Independence Day Parade is a grass-roots effort to honor America’s freedoms and to provide a wholesome, family-friendly way to celebrate the holiday. The Parade is presented under the auspices of the Greater Kingsville Civic Association, Inc., the Kingsville Community Alliance, Inc. and the Kingsville Volunteer Fire Company by the Friends of the Kingsville Parade. All Parade workers are volunteers, and the Parade is entirely self-sustaining through the generosity of individuals, local merchants, advertisers, and corporate sponsors. Contributions can include cash donations, display and patron advertising in the parade booklet, band sponsorships, and in-kind contributions from merchants and corporate sponsors.

The Parade’s modern incarnation began in 1980 when several members of the community joined together to reestablish a parade honoring the birthday of our nation. Since that time, a dedicated group of volunteers work year ‘round to plan and run the Parade.

A typical day at the Parade begins at the triangle formed by the intersection of Belair, Jerusalem and Bradshaw Roads with a pre-parade show featuring various local musicians, dancers, clowns and others. The Parade itself begins with the presentation of the colors, the Pledge of Allegiance and the playing of the Star Spangled Banner. Frequently, in recent years, the National Anthem has been enhanced by a fly-over of A-10 Thunderbolt jets from the Maryland Air National Guard.

The Parade itself typically features a diverse group of entries that includes marching bands, military units, antique cars and tractors, area volunteer and paid fire companies, local school and scouting groups, equestrian units, religious and civic groups, elected officials, political candidates, every kind of powered vehicle, and local merchants, just to name a few. Entries may compete for cash awards and trophies.

Each year’s parade is geared around a theme nominated by an area elementary school student, who is always an honored participant in the parade. Also, every year, a well-known local person is named Grand Marshal in recognition of long-standard service to the community.

This year the Pre-parade music and celebration commence at 9:30 A.M. at the Judges viewing stand. The Parade will start promptly at l0:45 A.M. and proceed down Bradshaw Road for opening ceremonies at the Judges stand at 11:00 A.M., turn right on Jerusalem Road and end at St. Paul's Church.

We hope that you will join us at this year’s Parade!

Without the support and generous contributions of our parade, band, pre-parade sponsors and in-kind service providers, the Kingsville Parade could not be presented. We thank the sponsors of this year's Parade and urge everyone to patronize these community-minded folks, and, when you do, personally thank them for supporting the Parade.
