July 4th in Montclair is often signified by one annual event: the Fourth of July Parade. And as Always, The Town Showed Up in Droves.
This year, the town was graced with an even bigger and better Independence Day celebration. Beginning at Bloomfield Avenue, working its way down Midland Ave and eventually ending at Edgemont Park, the parade honored 150 years of Montclair history, athletic achievements, political campaigns, and encouraged calls for social action.
Every year, floats and marchers for Egan & Sons, the Commonwealth Club, and Montclair’s own Elvis are among the highlights. But, the true star of the 4th of July parade is the Montclair community lining the streets, coming together for a town-wide celebration, cheering on parade participants, and exhibiting the best that Montclair has to offer.
