Registration Now Open for 4th of July Parade

Parade registration for Duck's annual 4th of July Parade is now open!  This year's Parade is on Wednesday, July 4, 2012 at 9:00 a.m. with a concert and community social being held immediately following at the Duck Town Park, 1200 Duck Road.  The after event includes music by Ruth Wyand & Friends, refreshments, and the awarding of parade trophies.

The one-mile Parade route is the same annually and begins at the crest of the hill on Scarborough Lane. The route follows Scarborough Lane towards the ocean, turns left onto Ocean Way, and then heads down Christopher Drive ending back at Duck Road (NC 12). If you are attending the Parade, please arrive early so you can get a good spot on the Parade route. Remember, NO PART OF THE PARADE IS ON DUCK ROAD (NC 12). And parking in Town is at a premium, so please plan to walk or ride your bicycle and be in Town well in advance of the Parade start time of 9:00 a.m. The Parade is set to last for one hour and anticipates about 7,000 attendees.  For information, visit the 4th of July page of our website.  For the registration form, click here.  For guidelines, click here
