Thousands expected at ‘An Edmonds Kind of 4th’ parade Monday

EDMONDS, Wash – July 4th is a big deal in Edmonds.

Last year was the first year of in-person commemoration since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the parade drew about 15,000 people.

The event is so popular that people began lining up seats along the parade route on Sunday evenings to claim their spots.

This year’s parade features dozens of participants, including antique carriages, horses and dance performances. There’s a little something for everyone.

Erica Suggs of the Edmonds Chamber of Commerce said the parade helps draw people to Edmonds that wouldn’t normally come.

“We often hear people like, ‘Oh yeah, I’m going through Edmonds to get on the ferry, and this is the first time I’ve actually been to downtown Edmonds, and it’s gorgeous,'” Suggs said. “So we like that the parade attracts a lot of people to see it. It’s a wonderfully idyllic spot, beautiful views of the water. Therefore. If you haven’t spent a day in Edmonds before, really try to cross both ends with time to wander around and enjoy the city’s charms. “

The festival starts with 5K at 8 a.m., followed by a children’s parade at 11:30 a.m. at corner 5 and Walnut.

The main parade begins at noon from the intersection of North 6th Avenue and Main Street.
