Rockwall’s Independence Day parade will begin Saturday, July 3 at 11:00 a.m. The annual parade will wind its way through downtown featuring the Rockwall County Sheriff’s Posse, distinguished community leaders, and dozens of families.
The success of the parade is dependent on neighborhood and community participants, so all residents are invited to dress in red, white and blue and walk in the parade or decorate wagons, bicycles, and ATVs to ride the route. Classic cars and canine participants are also welcome. If you would like to be a part of the parade, just meet at 10:30 a.m. on Kaufman Street (just west of Fannin) to line up. If you just want to view the festivities, find a spot along the route and enjoy the “Fourth on the Third.”
The parade, sponsored by Community Bank and Friends of Old Town Rockwall, will begin at 11:00 a.m. Participants will travel west on Kaufman to the square, turn south on San Jacinto, east on Rusk, south on Fannin, then east on Washington to Clark, north on Kaufman and back to the square where cold drinks will be served.
In addition, the City of Rockwall’s Farmer’s Market will be in full swing on the square both before and after the parade. If you have questions, call Sheri Fowler at 214-926-6466 or log on to www.oldtownrockwall.com.
