Join the town of Blowing Rock for the best small-town Main Street parade you’ll find anywhere! Local families, musicians, organizations, and characters celebrate the holiday with a patriotic procession. The parade is usually 40 minutes to an hour long.
*PLEASE NOTE the 10am Parade Time!
In addition, Main Street will be closed to parking from midnight the night before, to just after the parade (12am-11am on July 3). No parking on Main Street for the parade will ensure better visibility and safety! To make parking easy, a complimentary shuttle service will run from the parking lot at Tanger Outlet to Main Street, beginning at 8:00am. The shuttle will run continuously through 5:00 pm.
After the parade, enjoy holiday shopping and dining around town until ready to return to your vehicle, then check out what’s new at Tanger Outlet!
