Celebrate Independence Day in Davidson
Residents are invited to celebrate our nation’s independence with a homespun, small-town stroll and a concert on the green on Sunday, July 2. The parade will include a color guard, fire engine, and lots of patriotic residents.
To walk in the stroll, residents are asked to line up in front of the 251 South Street building at 5:15 p.m. Police will be closing off South Street (starting at Cathey Street) between 5:10 and 5:35 p.m. so that participants can line up in the road and on the sidewalks. Festivities will begin at 5:30 p.m. All participants are encouraged to march in the parade dressed in Independence Day attire and to decorate their wagons, bicycles, tricycles, and pets in red, white, and blue. A color guard comprised of members of the police and fire departments will lead the parade up South Street onto Main Street and the town green.
“This is a fun way for our entire community to come together and show our Davidson spirit,” said Economic Development Manager Kim Fleming.
The concert begins at 6:00 p.m. and features the Tonez, a variety band. Learn more about them on their website by clicking here.
“We hope to see neighbors from all over the community — from the Circles at 30 all the way to the extra-territorial jurisdiction — in the stroll and on the green to hear some great music,” said Fleming.
A word about fireworks…
The Davidson Police Department reminds residents to keep their own safety and that of their neighbors in mind this holiday — per the North Carolina General Statute, fireworks are strictly prohibited for personal use.
