42nd Annual 4th of July Parade
July 3 @ 11:00 pm - July 4 @ 1:00 am
Join us for an All American 4th of July Parade celebration ! !
Ober Gatlinburg is proud, once again, to participate in the City of Gatlinburg’s 42nd Annual Midnight Independence Day Parade!
This tradition began in 1976, when Gatlinburg decided to host the FIRST Bicentennial Parade in the United States, by kicking off the Parade at the stroke of Midnight, after preparations were made the night of July 3rd.
The Parkway will close to motor traffic sometime after 11pm, Sunday, July 3rd, 2017.
Again, the parade will start at exactly midnight, as the calendar clicks over to July 4th.
See you there!
