(Bel Air, Maryland) The Bel Air Independence Day Committee is eagerly seeking floats, marching units, antique cars, and comic/novelty acts to join the area’s biggest and best 4th of July celebration!
Local businesses and organizations can be part of the fun as well, with their own entry appearing in front of tens of thousands lining the parade route through downtown Bel Air.
“Our parade is an annual tradition for thousands of local residents, and we work hard to make sure the parade is a terrific, fun-filled event for all involved,” said parade chairman Michael Blum. “But we can’t do it without you!”
The theme for 2013 is “Celebrating America’s Volunteers,” and entrants are encouraged to decorate or craft their entry to illustrate or embody that theme. The deadline for applying to join the parade is FRIDAY, JUNE 14.
Entrants who have joined the parade in previous years are urged not to wait to receive an application from the Bel Air Independence Day Committee! The only way to join the parade in 2013 is by filling out an online application on the committee’s Web site at: http://www.belairjuly4.org/innerpages/contact.html. Full rules and regulations governing parade entries are available at http://www.belairjuly4.org/innerpages/paraderules.html.

What did they run out of Car dealer and politicians? That is all this parade has amounted to over the last few years. No wonder its attendance is down.
I do appreciate that Bel Air celebrates “Independence Day” and not ” the fourth of July” as this holiday is so often referred to. Maybe not the biggest issue to ponder these days but one that I think holds some importance.
