Giant helium inflatables, creative floats and marching bands will again take over Downtown Round Rock this year for the 2019 Sertoma July 4th Parade!
The 1.5-mile route runs north along Mays Street between Mays Crossing and U.S. 79, with a 9 a.m. start time to beat the summer heat.
Parking will be available in public garages and on streets; however, it is important to note that the route along Mays Street will remain closed before and after the parade. Visitors entering from west of Mays Street should enter downtown from Round Rock Avenue or McNeil Road. Visitors entering from east of Mays Street are encouraged to use Georgetown Street or South Burnet Street.
Independence Day festivities will continue as the Round Rock Parks and Recreation Department hosts Frontier Days, which will begin at noon at Old Settler’s Park, 3300 Palm Valley Blvd.
