    The parade steps off at 10am sharp winding through the beautiful GVSU Allendale campus. You'll see all kinds of friendly hometown faces from area businesses and organizations making their way down the route as walkers and riders. You'll see military and emergency vehicles, tractors, trailers, busses, walkers, wagons, strollers, bikes and more. Be sure to watch over head for a captivating airplane fly over!

    Next, head over to Allendale Township Park for a chicken BBQ fundraiser, auto show, craft/vendor fair, Critter Barn Traveling Farm, inflatable bounce houses, concession stand and museum tours. 

    The 4th of July isn't complete without a grand firework display! Gather back at the Township Park for live music in the concert pavilion from 8pm - 9:30pm. Fireworks sponsored by Allendale Charter Township will launch at dusk (approx. 9:50pm - 10:00pm.)
