THE WOODLANDS, TX – The South County 4th of July Parade Committee is reaching out to invite everyone who values patriotism and community spirit to be a part of the 48th Annual South County 4th of July Parade. This event is a vibrant celebration of independence and a cherished tradition that brings together our community, celebrates our country and fosters a sense of unity.

In recognition of the 50th Anniversary of the founding of The Woodlands, this year’s parade theme is ‘Saluting the Past. Celebrating the Future.’ The Parade Committee is honored to name George Mitchell, posthumously, and his granddaughter Adrienne Dreiss Ropp as the Grand Marshals.

Participants in the parade will march proudly, waving our nation’s flag, and creating new memories. This – the largest parade between Houston and Dallas – celebrates with fire engines, floats, marching bands, horses, antique cars, and much more. The parade route is approximately 1.3 miles long, meandering through The Woodlands Town Center and Market Street, beginning and ending at The Woodlands Methodist Church. There are always several must-see commercial floats featured in the parade. Parade announcers are located along the parade route and the Master of Ceremonies are located just above the North Commons in Market Street. A panel of Community Celebrity Parade Judges will select the best floats and entries in ten award categories.

The South County Fourth of July Committee is a 501(c)(3) corporation funded by community donations and sponsorships, composed of dedicated volunteers responsible for the annual 4th of July Parade in The Woodlands area. The parade was originally organized by The Woodlands Lions Club in the late 1970s before the formation of The South County Fourth of July Committee in the early 1990s.
