Fourth of July parade returns to Estacada
Estacada's Fourth of July parade returns with the theme of "Remember When." The theme was selected by the Downtown Estacada Commission to inspire thoughts of nostalgia in the float designs.
Representatives of Estacada Public Library were selected as this year's grand marshals. "We are so excited to be able to organize the fourth of July parade this year for our community," said Taylor Gibson, Chair of the Downtown Estacada Commission. "We are also excited to be presenting the Library as our grand marshal this year. They made such a huge impact on our community during COVID closures and made sure that everyone had access to the library."
Starting at 10 a.m. at Estacada High School, the parade will then go south on Main Street to downtown, cross over to Broadway on Southeast Fourth Avenue and continue up Broadway Street to River Mill Elementary School.
Applications to join the parade are still available at the city's website. Parade organizers are allowing local nonprofits and service organizations to register for the parade for free to honor the work done during COVID-19 pandemic and recent fires.
This year's parade is sponsored by R&H Tree Service and Oregon Health Insurance Marketplace.
