Celebrate Independence Day in Davidson:
Join us for a Parade and Concert on July 4
Citizens are invited to celebrate our nation's independence with a homespun, small-town stroll and a concert on the green on Thursday, July 4. The parade will include a color guard, fire engine, and lots of patriotic residents.
Parade marchers are asked to line up at 251 South Street at 5:15 p.m., and the festivities will begin at 5:30 p.m. All citizens are encouraged to march in the parade dressed in Independence Day attire and to decorate their wagons, bicycles, tricycles, and pets in red, white, and blue. A color guard comprised of members of the police and fire departments will lead the parade up South Street onto Main Street and the town green.
"This is a fun way for our entire community to come together and show our Davidson spirit," said Economic Development Manager Kim Fleming.
The concert begins at 6:00 p.m. and features Da Throwback Band, a 70s show band.

"We hope to see neighbors from all over the community -- from the Circles at 30 all the way to the extra-territorial jurisdiction -- in the parade and on the green to hear some fun music," said Fleming.
