The 4th of July Parade in Kalispell is a wonderful experience for everyone in the community to enjoy. It is the perfect way to celebrate America’s Independence Day with family, friends and lots of fun.
Every year, the 4th of July Parade takes place in Downtown Kalispell on Main Street. The theme of the parade will always be patriotic proudly promoting and supporting America’s Red, White and Blue. The parade route is clearly marked with red, white and blue colors. The parade features horse clubs, beautiful floats, color guards, antique vehicles, stilt walkers, fire trucks, veteran groups, youth groups and bands….all dressed in the colors of the day. One of the most exciting elements, especially for the kids, is that many of the float riders and participants will hand out candy and other treats.
2021 4th of July Parade Changes
This year was a little different from others because the parade was not sponsored by the Kalispell Chamber. Due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Kalispell Chamber of Commerce had to make the difficult decision to not sponsor the parade.
Due to the continuing health situation, increasing costs and liabilities, and limited volunteer support, the Chamber will not produce parades going forward..~ Kalispell Chamber of Commerce President Lorraine Clarno
