SAVE THE DATE: Fourth of July Parade will return in 2022
Monday, July 4, 2022 will see the return of one of Hillsboro's longest traditions in Historic Downtown!
The Hillsboro Rotary will host the 2022 Fourth of July Parade, with support from the City of Hillsboro, Hillsboro Downtown Partnership, Washington County Chamber of Commerce, and a multitude of volunteers. The parade kicks off at 10:00 am and wraps up between noon and 1:00 pm.
The parade has long been a cherished tradition for people across the region, welcoming tens of thousands to line the streets of Historic Downtown Hillsboro to watch dozens of parade entries entertain pass by. Marching bands, horseback riders, dancers, and the much-loved Interagency Motorcycle Group of Washington County (Their synchronized riding is a delight and signals the start of the parade!).
Our Hometown Heroes will be honored at this year's parade!
The essential workers in our community - nurses, paramedics, teachers, grocery clerks, and more - have been the real Hometown Heroes over the last two years. This parade is meant to honor them!
Bob Rollinger, a Hillsboro Rotary member who has served on its leadership team and is organizing the parade, said he hopes essential workers see the parade as a boost of encouragement and support as the pandemic continues.
"Essential workers have seen the community through the pandemic by putting in extra hours, all with a positive attitude, even while often being short-staffed", Rollinger said.
