Key Biscayne 4th of July Parade

mdcThe parade began in 1959 when a couple of local Key Biscayners decided they wanted to teach their children the importance of being an American. They called on their friends and neighbors to celebrate the 4th of July by parading through the island streets. As the years progressed, the parade organization grew.

Now, over 50 years later, the parade has approximately 50 entries, and is reknown for being “the Best Lil’ Hometown Parade in South Florida!” The all-volunteer Parade Committee now consists of 20-25 Key Biscayne residents who organize entries from all over South Florida.
