4th of July Parades: Where to Have Flag-Waving Fun around El Paso
Attending a fireworks show isn’t the only way to celebrate our country's independence.
If you’re looking to celebrate the Fourth of July with a good old-fashioned parade of beauty queens, decorated cars, and people decked out in patriotic gear a couple of local service organizations have you covered on both ends of the city.
Grab a lawn chair and pop a squat along the following streets. And don’t forget your American flag.
45th Annual Lions Fourth of July Parade
The yearly Eastside community parade travels down Montwood and Yarbrough from its starting point of Hanks High School, then north to Album Avenue, where it ends at Eastwood (Album) Park. Sponsored by the El Paso del Norte Lions Club, "The People's Parade" begins at 9 a.m.
