This year’s annual Fourth of July parade in Saugerties will return to tradition and include some 50 local organizations participating. The parade steps off on Sunday, July 4 at 1 p.m., but participants should be prepared to line up starting at noon to get positioned and ready to go. Participants are asked to enter Washington Avenue from Krout Road. Parking will be available at the Small World playground on Washington Avenue, just north of the ballfields. Only vehicles that will be part of the parade will be allowed in the area of Washington Avenue where the parade will be forming.
The parade route runs from Robert Moses Drive along Washington Avenue to Russell Street, turns right on Russell Street, then left onto Partition Street where the official viewing and judging stand is placed. A right turn on Market Street brings the procession back to Robert Moses Drive.
July 4 fireworks will begin at dusk at Cantine Field.
