The Leadville/Lake County Chamber of Commerce is seeking any and all businesses, organizations, and community groups who would like to submit an entry in this year’s Fourth of July parade, to be held on Friday, July 4th at 10 a.m.

As our country celebrates its 238th birthday, Leadville will dress up in flags and patriotic colors and host a classic 4th of July parade straight down Harrison Avenue.  If you or your organization is interested in joining this parade and celebration, contact the Chamber of Commerce to get signed up.

The parade will begin at 10 a.m.  All entrants will be lined up by 9:30 a.m. in front of the National Mining Hall of Fame and Museum on 9th Street. 

Immediately following the parade the Independence Day festivities will continue with various community BBQs and ice cream socials both here in town and out at the airport.  The day’s public events will wrap up with one of the best high altitude fireworks displays in Colorado. Please contact the Chamber of Commerce at (719) 486-3900, email at leadville@leadvilleusa.com, or stop by the Visitor Center at 809 Harrison Avenue for more information or to get signed up for the parade!
