Up and Coming

JULY 4

Celebrate America's birthday with a heaping helping of hometown patriotism! You won't find a more joyful Independence Day celebration than Arrow Rock's annual Impromptu Parade. This year's parade begins at 2 p.m. on July 4th and travels the length of Main Street from the Old Schoolhouse to the J. Huston Tavern. And the best part? Everyone is welcome to join the parade! Bring your tractor, golf cart, old car, bicycle, horse, dog, walking shoes -- whatever helps you express bring your best star-spangled game. Or join our kazoo band -- undoubtedly the most talented impromptu kazoo band in all the land! Parade participants should line up at the Old Schoolhouse at Eighth & Main no later than 1:45 p.m. Spectators can watch from anywhere along Main Street but the best view is from the Boardwalk, where you can take in the kazoo band's grand finale.
