Event based from Broadwell Pavilion to include music, cratts and more

Milton, are you ready to celebrate — our country and our community?

 

Then come out to downtown Crabapple on July 3 for the City’s family-friendly “walking parade” and Independence Day celebration.

The festivities will center at Broadwell Pavilion, starting at 9 a.m. that Saturday. An hour later, a City of Milton fire truck will lead the “parade,” with participants down Broadwell Road, turning onto Marstow Drive, looping around that neighborhood and its pond. The walking and rolling shouldn’t last long, eventually winding back to Broadwell Pavilion at 12615 Broadwell Road.

There, families can have all sorts of fun — including cornhole, face painting, balloon art and crafts — while listening to music spun by City program partner Bach 2 Rock. Kona Ice treats will be available for purchase, while people can also enjoy complimentary light snacks and drinks.

 

All attendees are encouraged to get into the spirit by wearing their red, white and blue. And if you have a bicycle, tricycle or wagon, then try to deck it out in All-American style.

 

Like so much else, this year’s edition is extra special because it comes as Milton, Georgia, and the nation are finally turning the corner in the COVID-19 pandemic. Last summer’s “walking parade” was one of many events around the region canceled between spring 2020 and 2021. While common-sense protocols will be in place, the City looks forward to hosting this outdoors event once more early next month.

 

If you have questions about Milton’s July 3rd celebration, please contact Special Events Coordinator Anita Jupin at anita.jupin@cityofmiltonga.us.
