Join the Riverwalk Parade to celebrate Independence Day Astoria-style.
The 7th Annual Riverwalk Community Parade will be Saturday, July 4. The parade line-up will be at 7:45pm at the Barbey Center, just east of the Columbia River Maritime Museum, with the parade beginning at 8 p.m. The parade will proceed west along the Riverwalk to the 6th Street Viewing Dock.

All are welcome, so dress up, dress down and participate in this no cost event. Decorate your bike, trike, kid and/or dog and come join the “Kiddie Kazoo Marching Band" (kazoos provided by Purple Cow toys) and other local organizations as we celebrate our independence! The Transcendental Brass Band, sponsored by Buoy Beer Co., will be leading the way.

Come enjoy a vibrant, fun, relaxed and safe atmosphere for all community members to see Astoria's fabulous fireworks display!
