Instructions for Parade Entries

  • The parade starts at 11:00am SHARP!
  • All entries must be on Key Biscayne and in line by or before 10:00am as the police shut down Crandon Blvd southbound at 10:00am and traffic will get heavy. The line up will take place on Fernwood Road. When you get to Key Biscayne, take a right onto Harbor Drive, go to the roundabout just past the 7-11. Do not follow Harbor Drive, turn left on Fernwood Road and a committee member in a red shirt will give you an entry number and show you where to go.
  • No water balloons, water guns, confetti, or streamers are allowed!!! We want to keep any trash to a minimum.  All give-away items, including candy, must be thrown from people walking alongside the float/entry, not from the float/cart/car etc.
  • The parade will end around 1:00. The Rotary Club is having a BBQ in the Village Green after the parade.

Looking forward to seeing you all on the 4th!

Key Biscayne 4th of July Parade

The parade began in 1959 when a couple of local Key Biscayners decided they wanted to teach their children the importance of being an American. They called on their friends and neighbors to celebrate the 4th of July by parading through the island streets. As the years progressed, the parade organization grew.

This year, 2024, is our 65th parade, and we will have approximately 50-60 entries.  Our parade is renowned for being “the Best Lil’ Hometown Parade in South Florida!” The all-volunteer Parade Committee now consists of 20-25 Key Biscayne residents who organize entries from all over South Florida.
