The 11th annual Barracks Row Fourth of July Parade will begin at 10:00 a.m. Wednesday, July 4, 2012. The parade route begins at the 295-395 overpass (at 8th and I Streets, SE) and ends at the Eastern Market Metro Plaza. The parade will take one hour from start to finish.
This year there are two Co-Grand Marshalls: DC Council Member Tommy Wells and Police Captain Taggert. The marchers will be led by The Commandant's Own Drum and Bugle Corps who will be followed by the winners of all regions of the Miss US Pageant. Many local groups including Princesses Patrols, shown here, Super Heroes and car clubs participate every year.
If your group plans to participate call Sharon Boesen at 202-543-5755 at Tiber Creek Associates www.tiberdc.com. There is no charge to march but planners would like to know for organizational purposes who will be in the parade.
The parade is sponsored in part by Tiber Creek Associates of Capitol Hill and Masons Naval Lodge No. 4. The parade is co sponsored by Barracks Row Main Street, CSX, The Hill Rag, Bob Bergman and The National Community Church.
Barracks Row Main Street is a designated DC Main Streets commercial district. Barracks Row Main Street is funded in part by the Department of Small and Local Business Development.
