Hyannis 4th of July Parade - A Star Spangled Independence Day

Parade steps off at 4 p.m. July Fourth

For the last fourteen years, the Hyannis Fourth of July Parade has been an annual flagship event for the village of Hyannis and the Town of Barnstable. This year, the Town of Barnstable along with the Town of Barnstable Fourth of July Committee is excited to continue the 2019 Town of Barnstable Fourth of July Celebration on Thursday, July 4, 2019 from 4:00 – 9:00 PM. The theme for this year’s festivities is “A Star Spangled Independence Day!”

The parade will step off promptly at 4:00 PM at the corner of Old Colony Road and Main Street in Hyannis. This year’s Grand Marshals will be members of the Barnstable Youth Commission. Participants can sign up on line to enter their float, antique vehicle or group. The web site is https://townofbarnstable.us/Fourth-of-July.asp

This revamped annual event builds upon the many years of success and includes five full hours of jam-packed, nonstop programming and family-friendly entertainment. From the east end to west end of Main Street and down to the waterfront, residents and visitors alike will enjoy the annual parade, concerts, and fireworks, as well as street performers, musicians, family games, jugglers, face painting, free trolley rides around the Village Green, and other interactive elements that will create lasting memories for the whole family.

Parade organizer Kevin Shanley said, “It is truly the goal of the Town of Barnstable Fourth of July Celebration to create an amazing experience involving our community so that the village of Hyannis and the Town of Barnstable become the premiere destination for the Fourth of July on Cape Cod!”

There are several opportunities for businesses and individuals who wish to support the event and anyone interested should contact Kevin Shanley at 508-776-5885 or email [email protected] Volunteers will be needed throughout the day and are encouraged to sign up as soon as possible. An online volunteer application form is available here.

The Fourth of July Celebration Committee is comprised of local business owners and neighborhood residents whose purpose is to organize and produce five hours of continuous family programming for residents and visitors, seek donations and volunteers, and work with Town departments to present a unique experience during the busiest Holiday of the year in Hyannis and Cape Cod.

Members of The Barnstable Youth Commission are appointed by Town Council each year and must be residents of the Town of Barnstable 18 years of age and under. Their goal is to work with Town officials to assist in solving problems and make the Town a better place for the Youth of today and tomorrow. Recent accomplishments include the 7th Grade Youth Summit, Youth Job Fair, One Love program to educate students about healthy relationships, Ambassadors for a Youth Homelessness survey, and coming soon, the development of a Youth Suicide Prevention Task Force. The 2018-19 members attend Barnstable High School, Cape Cod Regional Technical High School in Harwich, Sturgis East Public Charter Schools and Saint John Paul II Catholic High School in Hyannis.
