“Hats off to America” has been chosen as the CarmelFest 2017 July 4th parade theme.
Parade director Barbara Ellis said that committee members hope the theme will unite the community as they celebrate Independence Day.
“The ‘Hats off to America’ theme will encourage parade entrants to be creative with their floats and entries, especially since this is a theme we have not used before,” Ellis stated.
Organizers encourage participants in the parade to wear hats and wave them to the crowd along the route. Parade watchers are also encouraged to wear and wave hats.
The parade begins at 10:30 a.m. July 4. Learn more at carmelfest.net.
