The Lander 4th of July parade attracts thousands to Main Street each year to kick off the holiday fun. In fact, Lander’s 4th of July overall has been regarded as one of the best in the nation by several national publications.
If you are planning on joining the fun this year, there are a few things the City of Lander would like you to remember.
- Setting out chairs early to claim your spot along the parade route has been a tradition for decades. However, Lander Assistant Mayor Rajean Strube Fossen tells us,
If citizens leave chairs, canopies or other equipment left overnight within the 5′ ADA required sidewalk space, they are in danger of being stacked up by the PD”
- Fireworks on the parade route are NOT allowed. Legal firework use does begin at 10:00 a.m., but within a block of Main Street is now allowed during the parade. Fireworks are not allowed on City or school property all day.
- This year, there will be a no water balloon policy, for both floats and patrons.
- The Parade Committee announced that they discourage throwing candy in the driving lanes. Handing it out in person is better.
