Hillsboro's 4th of July Parade has been enjoyed for generations
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.
Parade Route Map
Big parade in historic downtown Hillsboro neighborhoods
The 4th of July parade runs passed downtown businesses and throughout downtown neighborhoods. We ask that visitors remember to respect the yards, sidewalks, and landscape strips in front of homes and businesses. It's the responsibility of the property owners and occupants to keep that area safe and clean, so please help them with this. If you are interested in viewing from a crosswalk, spectators are asked to wait until 9:30am when intersections are officially closed to traffic.
If you are riding TriMet MAX to the parade, the 8th Avenue stop is the best place to jump off and head north to the route. From a TriMet bus, get off at the Hillsboro Transit Center and walk one block north to Main Street. For drivers, there is plenty of parking available in both public and private lots on holidays outside the parade route (the inside is blocked off by 8:00 am). There are large County parking lots along 1st Avenue as well as City lots at 2nd/Washington and 10th/Baseline by the Police station.
Come prepared by packing these items for the event:
- Sunscreen and wide brim hats (for hot weather)
- Waterproof layers (for overcast or rainy weather)
- Drinking water
- Folding chairs or blankets to sit on
- A bag for candy
The parade ends at noon and we encourage everyone to grab lunch in downtown Hillsboro!
