4th of July Parades
Each year, our streets are filled with the red, white, and blue parades of a Cape Cod Fourth of July. Our patriotic communities feature large floats, food trucks, and live music that add to the annual celebration of America. If you want to attend of these star-spangled parades, plan to visit the nearby towns of Chatham, Provincetown, and Sandwich!
Or, you can celebrate Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness at the Hyannis Inner Harbor Boat Parade. The aquatic parade begins in the Hyannis Marina and fills the harbor with dozens of boats adorned with the proud colors of America.
