2014 Fourth Of July Parade In Glennallen

Fourth of July Parade

It was a very big 4th of July Parade and picnic this year.

Here was the information prior to the parade:

Everyone is invited to participate in the annual Parade!  There is something for everyone!  Stand on the sidelines and collect candy –or– enter a float and have a chance to win a prize! 

Our prizes this year for float winners are:

First place:  $100 from Glennallen DMV
Second place:  $75 gift certificate from Gakona Gallery

Third place:  $50 dinner-for-two certificate from Gakona Lodge

This is the Ahtna float -- from the Ahtna Facebook page.
Our theme for this year’s parade is “Celebrating Our American Spirit”. The parade will honor Katie Johns’ legacy, a Mentasta Athabascan elder who will long be remembered for her achievements regarding subsistence rights in Alaska.

Katie Johns’ Legacy exemplifies that Spirit!  America is “the Land of the Free”!

The Parade route is the same as last year.  Parade entrants should be at the Glennallen School parking lot by 9:30am for lineup.  The parade will start promptly at 10:30am.  The parade route will be down Aurora Drive to the Glenn Hwy, right on the Glenn, to the Glennallen Library.  The parade can be viewed from the Post Office to the Library.
