Children's Parade Registration Closed

Online Registration is now closed. However, you can still participate in the parade! Please register onsite at 9:30 a.m. on Thursday, July 4th. 
Onsite Registration begins at 9:30 a.m. Registering online will make your process quicker on the parade day, but you will still need to check in at the "Online Registration" tent. Please allow enough time to do this and get lined up in your section before the beginning of the parade.
The parade begins at 10:00 am.
This year's starting location is in the parking lot behind the Midland County History Museum on Texas Ave. Please check in at the registration tents, which are also located in the same parking lot. Parking can be found on the streets a block from the parade route or in the public parking garages.  You must arrive in time to find parking in the adjacent lots/street parking where allowed, etc.  
Categories: Birth—3 years, 4-6 years, 7-9 years, 10-12 years, and Power Wheels (groups with Power Wheel participants must all walk/ride in the final parade group). The category will be assigned by the majority age of participants. 
Decorations: Each child receives a ribbon and a flag to wave in the parade.  Sidewalk vehicles are encouraged (not required) to be decorated in red, white, and blue to salute our Military and First Responders while celebrating America's Birthday!
Vehicles: Sidewalk vehicles only (such as wagons, tricycles, bicycles, strollers, and Power Wheels).  NO MOTOR VEHICLES permitted on the parade route.
If you choose to join us in the park before or after the parade, please note that no wagons, bicycles, Power Wheels, etc., are allowed on the park premises. Please return these items to your vehicle before playing in the park and enjoying our vendors for the day.
