Chastain Park July 4th Parade
July 4 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Chastain Park Annual 4th of July Festivities
The Chastain Park Civic Association invites you to celebrate our nation’s independence at the annual Chastain Park July 4th Parade. Come join the neighborhood as we parade down Chastain Park Avenue (formerly W. Wieuca Road) in this treasured Chastain tradition!
Please register at the membership table at the event if you would like to be included in the judging contest. The registration table is also where you will receive wristbands for kids that wish to participate in the activities at the end of the parade route.
Decorate your bikes, strollers, golf carts, and selves to score bragging rights for the adults and prizes for the youngsters!
A panel of secret judges will be keeping an eye out for the following categories:
Most Patriotic Attire
Best Decorated Stroller
Best Decorated Bike/Trike/Scooter/Wagon
Best Decorated Golf Cart
Remember, Best doesn’t necessarily mean Prettiest, so we encourage you to get as silly, creative and flamboyant as you want!
11:00a – Parade lineup begins on Chastain Park Ave (formerly W. Wieuca Rd.) in front of the playground, near Dudley Drive.
11:25a – Pledge of Allegiance by neighborhood children
11:30a – Parade begins, led by our very own neighborhood Fire Station firetruck
12:00p – Parade concludes at Chastain Park Pool and Chastain Tennis Center Fun Zone
Please note during the parade Chastain Park Ave. will be closed to vehicular traffic from approximately 11:00a – 1:30p.
We encourage the neighborhood to come out and enjoy the cutest little parade in Buckhead!
Family Fun Zone
We will cross the finish line at the end of the parade route with a Family Fun Zone sponsored by the Chastain Park Civic Association, in conjunction with co-sponsors Dale Massey State Farm, Chastain Park Athletic Club, Snip-its Haircuts for Kids, and Elite Smiles Chastain.
Park partners the Chastain Park Pool and the Chastain Tennis Center will host the Fun Zone on their green spaces, including activities such as:
Double Bouncy Slide
Basketball Pop a Shot Hoops
Lawn Games (corn hole, giant jenga, ladder ball, ring toss and more!)
Snip-its Haircuts for Kids – located in the Fountain Oaks shopping center – will help your kiddos look their patriotic best at its Snip-its booth, where they will provide some fun up-dos, patriotic hair coloring (think red, white, blue, sparkles), patriotic hair ribbons and temporary tattoos.
Admission to Fun Zone is free to CPCA members, $8 per family for non-members.
After all that excitement, you’ll want some refreshments, and we’ve got you covered. We have several food/treat vendors attending this year:
Chick Fil A
The Funnel Cake Guys
King of Pops
The Chastain Park Pool will also be selling drinks, snacks and more at the Snack Shack.
We have a very exciting event planned, and hope to see you and your family stepping out in your patriotic best!
