The Ann Arbor Jaycees Fourth of July Parade is one of our family’s Fourth of July traditions. My daughter was in the parade from age 3 to 13 in 2019. Due to construction downtown, the Jaycees 33rd annual Fourth of July Parade has been moved to Briarwood Mall and to Sunday, July 2. There will be food trucks and more before the parade.

The Ypsilanti Fourth of July Parade is back this year, followed by a bicentennial event.

Whitmore Lake is also having a parade on July 4th at 10a. Or for a spin on the traditional parade, check out their boat parade of lights at 10p.

While there are other 4th of July parades in Michigan, these are the ones in the Ann Arbor area.
