America: Yesterday, Today, and Forever!
The Parade begins at 10:00am at the foot of Griswold and Main Street in Downtown Northville. St. Mary Mercy Hospital will be among the dozens of floats entered in this year’s Parade.
Festivities begin with our opening ceremonies at City Hall followed by a parade of music, floats, marching bands, clowns, vintage and classic cars, a pet parade, a bike parade and even the Monkeymobile! There is so much to see at this year's Independence Day Parade in Northville!
The Northville Community Foundation will host the Parade for the 15th year
and St. Mary Mercy Hospital is returning as our event sponsor.
