Parade watchers should park in Old Settlers Park, where we will have shuttle buses and hay rides to take folks to the viewing area along Old Settlers Boulevard. The parade is scheduled to start at 10 a.m.
You’ll want to enter Old Settlers Park from U.S. 79 for the parade. Entry from Red Bud Lane won’t give you full access to the parking lots at Old Settlers Park due to road closures.
The parade has become one of Round Rock’s signature events. Last year alone, we had more than 2,000 people in the parade with over 20,000 people watching the parade. Our theme this year will be honoring Vietnam War veterans.
After the parade, just head back to Old Settlers Park for our July Fourth Frontier Days Celebration. We’ll have fireworks, carnival rides, jalapeno pepper eating contest, Swifty Swine Pig Races, children’s games, Sam Bass Shootout, Movies in the Park and skydivers.
This event is free for the entire family.
Independence Day festivities will include free watermelon at 7 p.m. at the Lakeview Pavilion and include music from the Austin Symphonic Band. Fireworks will start at dark. After the fireworks show, you can avoid the traffic heading out of the park by sticking around to watch the original Jurassic Park.
