Duxbury’s 4th of July parade has been a beloved town tradition since the 1890s. The event is organized each year by a dedicated team of volunteers who coordinate fundraising, parade planning and overall logistics for the 4th of July celebration.

The parade starts at Halls Corner, travels down Washington Street, turns onto St. George Street and ends at Duxbury High School. Onlookers enjoy a wide variety of community floats, marching bands, classic cars and more. Prizes are awarded to the floats that best represent the theme of the parade. This year’s theme is “Celebrating American Landmarks.” If you go, be sure to wave to the grand marshal, Duxbury resident Kristen Frazier, who is the founder of Wicked Good Cause .org, a nonprofit organization that supports South Shore families affected by unforeseen illness, accident or tragedy. The parade will start at 2 p.m. on July 4th.
