The Crown Point 4th of July Celebration Committee is excited to announce this year’s parade theme:
We invite your creativity and enthusiasm in decorating your entries to show your “American Pride.” Whether you are a business, organization, team or another proud member of our community, we know you can let your pride show!
Show Northwest Indiana what you do through your entry. Let everyone know your values and your commitment to making our country the best it can be. Get the word out about your business or organization while proudly displaying the “Red, White and Blue.”
New this year, we will be awarding engraved wood plaques to the first-place winners in each category. This plaque will have room to display a picture of your entry as well. We encourage everyone who is asking to be judged in the competition to take a group photo with your entry.
Also new this year, the parade will start at Main and Burrell Streets. We have coordinated with the city to provide more viewing space along Main Street as well as ease the congestion for our neighbors during our staging time. We sincerely hope that this will make your 4th of July parade more enjoyable for everyone. Please visit us on-line as we get closer to the parade for staging and traffic information.
