4th of July Parade 2017! | Tuesday, July 4th

2017 July 4 LogoWho: Pack 303 Cub Scouts

What: March in the Chanhassen 4th of July Parade

When: Tuesday, July 4th, 2017   |   2:00 – 3:30pm (meet at 1:45pm, parade starts at 2:30)

Where: Downtown Chanhassen (see below)

Why: Fun participation in 4th of July, Recruit potential Cub Scouts for fall

Bring/Wear: Class A Uniform with Neckerchief and Shorts (it’ll be hot!), Water Bottle (with water!), and sunscreen

Cub Scout Packs 303, 330 (St Huberts), 337 (Bluff Creek) and Boy Scout Troop 330 will be walking in the 4th of July Parade along with the American Legion at the front of the Parade. We’ll meet between 1:45 and 2:00 pm near the Chapel Hill Academy parking lot, and then walk the parade route. The parade begins at 2:30 pm.

Please plan to pick up your scout around 3:30pm near the intersection of Chan View St & Huron Av, close to the Heritage Park apartments.

There should be room for some Scouts to ride on the pickup truck or trailer. This is especially helpful for the younger Scouts who may not want to walk the whole distance. The Scouts will be carrying banners, flags and passing out freeze pops. We will have water coolers for the Scouts on the back of the trailer.

The parade route is about 2.25 miles total, through downtown Chanhassen. The parade will begin on West 78th Steet near Chapel Hill Academy and travel along West 78th Street, to Kerber Boulevard, to Santa Vera/Saratoga Drive, to Laredo Drive, and finally to Chan View. Many spectators seem to gather along W 78th Street and Kerber Blvd, but it can get quite hot and sunny on those streets not to mention crowded.  There are usually some shadier and less crowded spots along Santa Vera/Saratoga Dr,  Laredo Drive and Chan View Street which also get you a bit closer to the final pick up location.
