Entrants are encouraged to reflect the theme of this year’s Fourth of July festivities: “One From Many: Celebrating the Creation of the United States.”

“We’ve had decades of wonderful parades in Bel Air, and we are looking to make 2017 the best ever, especially considering the bad weather we’ve fought through for the past couple of years,” said Michael Blum, parade chairman and vice president of the Bel Air Independence Day Committee. “We welcome applicants from the greater Bel Air and Harford County community who would like to help us honor our great country and illustrate this year’s theme.”

For the third consecutive year, the Fourth of July Parade will once again begin at the intersection of Idlewild Street and South Main Street, proceed up Main Street through downtown Bel Air, and end at Gordon Street.

The Bel Air Independence Day Committee, Inc., a 501(c)3  non-governmental organization, produces the annual Bel Air July 4 parade out of respect for our country and our community. The committee accepts applications as it deems appropriate; all submissions will be reviewed and entrants notified.
