PARADE ROUTE 2023
begins at 10:00 AM, July 4th, 2023. Parade assembly
begins at the Civic Center Parking Lot just off of Harrison Ave. If
your entry will need to setup the night before, select floats may
call Matt Boyle at (406) 498-3549 or email at email@example.com to
arrange accommodations. DUE TO CONSTRUCTION, THE ONLY
ACCESS FOR ASSEMBLY WILL BE OFF HARRISON AVE. Entries will
be asked to lineup in their designated area which will be marked by a
number spray painted on the street.
Entry dimensions of your float must be accurate so we can allow enough room when lining up the floats before starting.
We will be asking floats to show up at certain times in
various group phases. Due to the tailings removal and construction
happening around the civic center, along with the new addition of the
bus barns, we have less room to work with this year than previous
years. We will give exact times and instructions at the pre parade
meeting on June 27th, 2023 at 6:30PM at the Knights of
The Parade route will begin with
entrants lined up and assembled on Civic Center Road and then turning
South on Harrison Ave. Entrants will continue on Harrison for 2.2
miles and will begin to disassemble by turning either West on
Longfellow Street, turning East on Elizabeth Warren street or
continue straight on Harrison Ave. Entrants may return to the Civic
Center parking lot after disassembling.
Entry dimensions must be accurate so we can allow enough
room in line up.

deadline will be assessed a $20.00 fee! Butte America
