Cub Scout Packs 303, 330 (St Huberts), and 337 (Bluff Creek) will be walking in the 4th of July Parade along with the Chanhassen American Legion Post 580 and Boy Scout Troop 330.  We’ll meet just before 2:00 pm near the Chapel Hill Academy parking lot, and then walk the parade route. The parade begins promptly at 2:30 pm.  We’ll distribute frozen treats during the parade.


Pick up your scout at approx. 3:30pm near Chan View Street & Huron Av, close to the Heritage Park apartments. Please note that since we are positioned toward the front, we will finish beforethe end of the parade.  So parents picking up scouts should plan accordingly.  Also, please make sure an adult leader has your cell phone number to assure we can connect and don’t have any lost scouts!

Intersection of Chan View St & Huron Av,

close to the Heritage Park Apartments


Getting to the Drop Off Location

Streets along the parade route will be closed.  One option is to approach the parade route from the north via Frontier Trail/Laredo Av and park on a neighborhood street.  This puts you in a position to watch the parade along Santa Vera/Saratoga Dr, Laredo Dr or Chan View Street, which are typically less crowded, more shady and closer to the drop-off & pick up points.  Alternatively, you can park south of W 78th St (including the SW Transit Ramp) & walk north to the drop off location.
