Union Grove Fourth of July parade 2018

The Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War march in the 2018 Union Grove Fourth of July parade.

UNION GROVE — “Moon Landing — 50th Anniversary” is the theme of the 2019 Union Grove 4th of July Parade. Various float entries will commemorate the July 20, 1969 arrival of Apollo 11 with astronauts Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins.

The parade starts promptly at 9:15 a.m. It travels east on Highway 11 from the Racine County Fairgrounds parking lot and goes north on Highway 45 to Seventh Avenue. It is preceded by a Kiddie Parade of decorated wagons, tricycles and bicycles which travels two blocks from Twelfth and Main streets to the Village Square at Tenth and Main streets. The streets will be closed to traffic before 9 a.m.

There are currently 90 entries in the parade lineup. The parade is traditionally led by veterans’ organizations, motorcycles and area fire departments.

Returning crowd favorites are the Belle City Brassworks Band on a flatbed truck and two Jolly Giants stilt walkers. Any late entries will be placed at the end of the parade, ahead of the horses.

The parade is organized annually by the Greater Union Grove Area Chamber of Commerce and Bixby-Hansen American Legion Post No. 171, Union Grove.

Donations towards the expenses of the parade are appreciated and checks may be mailed to Union Grove Parade Committee, P.O. Box 44, Union Grove, WI 53182. Call 262-878-4606 with any questions.
