2017 4th of July Parade and Pancake Breakfast

The City of Piedmont will celebrate its annual Independence Day Parade this year on Tuesday, July 4, starting at 11 a.m. at the corner of Highland Avenue and Park Way.

Each year the community is invited to participate at no cost with neighborhood floats and entries from various community organizations.The Piedmont parade is unique for the appearance of several bagpipe bands in keeping with the city’s Scottish traditions, and with a rich array of dozens of antique and classic cars.

A Grand Marshal historically leads the parade, which is less than eight blocks, ending just past Piedmont Park. A festive community picnic is held in Piedmont Park following the parade, with music provided by a big band on the main stage.


Preceding the parade, a Piedmont tradition, the Pancake Breakfast will be held from 8:00 AM to 10:30 AM in the Veterans’ Hall. Join your friends and neighbors for a hearty breakfast before the parade begins!
