2020 Virtual Fourth of July Costume Parade and Awards Ceremony

Attention all Yankee Doodle Dandies!
Covid-19 won’t tread on our patriotic spirit this year: we’ll be holding our annual Fourth of July costume parade this Saturday, July 4, except it will be virtually by video!

Here’s the plan:

  • Morning: Dress up in your finest, funniest, fabulous-est Fourth of July costume!
  • 11am – 12pm: Come outside of your house and stand street side outside your home only to “join the parade!” Show off your costume (appropriately socially distanced from your neighbors). Em Cavey will be driving through Town and film everyone on the street. Hopefully, it won’t be “95 degrees in the shade.”
  • 1pm – 2pm: Volunteer judges will view the video and come up with the costume awards. Perhaps a special Face Mask category is in order, to show you care about public health (and do so in style)!
  • 4pm – 5pm: Town Zoom call – everyone can listen to some music, watch the virtual parade, hear Mayor Compton deliver his annual address and enjoy the awards ceremony.

If you’d like to volunteer to be a judge, please contact Emily Cavey at [email protected] or 240-838-1840
