Decorate your wagon, ride your bike, skate, or walk in Decatur's July 4th Pied Piper Parade as it winds through downtown. The City Commissioners will lead the parade in the mini-firetruck. Neighborhoods and organizations are encouraged to make floats and join the fun.
Parade line-up is at the First Baptist Church of Decatur at 5:30pm. The parade begins at 6:00pm and it ends at the Community Bandstand on the square with a presentation of colors and the Star Spangled Banner.
Anyone may participate in the parade but those with vehicles must register by completing the July 4th Pied Piper Parade Guidelines form.
The concert, featuring the Callanwolde Concert Band, begins at 7:00pm in the Community Bandstand. Fireworks begin at dark (approximately 9:00pm) and are shot from the top of the DeKalb County parking deck.
