Come join us for the regionâs largest parade! It begins at 10 a.m. on July 4 and winds its way from Golden Peak on Vail Valley Drive, then west to Hanson Ranch Road, north on Bridge Street, west on Gore Creek Drive, north across the International Bridge, west along Meadow Drive and finally through the Lionshead Mall to finish at approximately noon. For a good view of the parade, arrive by 9:30 a.m. and pick a location along the parade route. These fun festivities continue throughout the day into the night with a spectacular firework show at Golden Peak at dusk. All of these events are extremely family oriented, so get the whole family to celebrate and enjoy the fun!
