The Village of Brooklyn will be hosting its annual Fourth of July Parade on Sunday, July 4 at 1 p.m. Staging for the parade will begin at 12:30 p.m. in the Presbyterian Church parking lot.
The parade route will head west on Marshall Street to North King Street/Tiffany Street to Potter Street, and from there to Lane Street and then northbound on South Main Street to the Village Square, around the Village Square to Chicago Street and then to West Street to return to the Presbyterian Church parking lot. This parade route is intentionally more compact than last year’s holiday parade due to the likelihood of hot weather to enable walking participants to be able to drop out along the route if they need to do so.
