July 4 Parade


Fly the flag proudly at the third annual Flag City July 4 parade in downtown Findlay.

The parade begins at the Marathon parking lot, continues on Lincoln and Main streets, and ends at the Hancock County War Memorial. Judging for floats and other units starts at 9:30am, with the parade stepping off at 11am. Organizers expect more than 60 parade units, from military vehicles to children, who are encouraged to decorate their bicycles and ride in the parade. Current and veteran military, police officers, firefighters and EMS personnel are invited to lead the patriotic parade.

“Our parade is open to everyone,” said Larry Halters of Mid Ohio Chiropractic & Acupuncture, an organizer and sponsor of the event along with Marathon Petroleum Corp. and other local businesses. “It’s a parade for Findlay, in Findlay.”

There is no fee for participating in the parade, but organizers ask that participants register beforehand. For more information or to obtain an entry form, call 419-294-7037 or 419-306-9567 or visit
