Southold’s Vintage Fourth of July Main Street Parade

July 4, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Horse in Southold 4th July parade

The Fourth of July would not be complete without a parade down a bunting-lined Main Street. On the North Fork, both Southold and New Suffolk host parades. The larger is the Southold parade, which will kick off at noon for the 21st time. Given that Southold was colonized in 1640, and historic sites abound, Southold is the perfect place to revel in Americana.

One of the classic local features are the kids on bikes; they deck out their rides in red, white and blue and cruise together like a float. Marching bands, Veterans, Scouts, traditional floats featuring community organizations of all sorts, and classic cars fill most of the parade. The route stretches along Main Road from Boisseau Avenue to Tuckers Lane.

Bring a chair, a mini-flag or two, and stop in somewhere for a lovely lunch after you’ve watched the marchers and floats cruise by. Check out some pictures from last year.
