City Of Newnan's 4th Of July Parade “Proud To Be An American”

Main Street Newnan kicks off Newnan’s Fourth of July activities with the 4th of July Parade at 6:00 p.m. on Friday, July 4th. The annual parade starts at the Veterans Park at the corner of Temple and Jackson Street and continues down Jackson and LaGrange to conclude at Newnan High School.

The Newnan Rotary Club picks up the festivities from there with family fun and fireworks until dark.

This year’s theme for the parade will be a simple and true one, “Proud to be an American.” This year, Main Street is proud to announce Mrs. Norma Haynes; longtime resident of Newnan will serve as the Grand Marshal.

Independence Day has become a day for remembering soldiers, celebrating our freedoms, enjoying our summer, and backyard barbeques. The City of Newnan Fourth of July Parade will be held Friday, July 4th at 6:00 p.m. Applications are available online at main streetnewnan.com.

“The great parade and fireworks display have become a great tradition for the community. Fourth of July activities in Newnan are hopefully on everyone’s ‘must-do’ list. It’s become another way to enjoy the holiday and really celebrate being an American,” said Linda Kee, Main Street Newnan Director.

After the completion of the parade, fun, festivities, children activities, and entertainment will be at Newnan High School’s Drake Stadium. Sponsored by the City of Newnan, Coweta County, and the Rotary Club, fireworks will begin at dusk.
