A Quirky Spirit of Independence at the Warren July 4th Parade
July 02, 2015
The Warren July 4th parade along Main Street celebrates independence with a twist. Now in its 67th year, this small-town parade has achieved legendary status in Vermont.
This is by far my favorite Independence Day celebration in Vermont. In addition to the classic cars, lively performers and creative floats, the Warren July Fourth parade always includes a healthy dose of political satire, addressing everything from climate change to health care.
The photos in this post were taken in Warren back in 2007, when the parade’s theme was “Fueling the Future.” The 2015 parade theme will be “Live it! Love it!” to celebrate the quality of life in Vermont.
The parade starts at 10 a.m., but get there early to secure a good spot.
As always, it will be a memorable—and fun—day on Main Street in Warren.

Warren is a great parade (see you there), but The Mad River Valley is full of great things to do and see over the holiday weekend.

Looks like a trip worth making. Great small-town community spirit which makes Vermont so special! I am going to the one in Saxtons River, a little closer to home.
