City of College Park 4th of July Parade
Monday, July 4, 2022 | 11:00am | Rhode Island Ave. 

Join the City of College Park in celebrating Independence Day at our Fourth of July parade! Spectators can line up along Rhode Island Avenue to see local groups, organizations, entertainers, and performers.

If you're driving to the parade, park in residential areas near the parade route. Parking enforcement will be relaxed.

Rhode Island Avenue will be temporarily closed to traffic for the parade. Details on the road closure and detour information is available here.



Fireworks and Pet Safety

For a dog or cat resting safely at home, the sounds and sights of fireworks could produce panic. This Fourth of July, help your pets combat their fear of fireworks with these tips from the City's Animal Welfare Committee: 

  • If possible, stay home with your pets when you know fireworks are scheduled. Nothing soothes your animals like your presence.
  • If  your pet panics when unexpected loud noises occur, ask your vet to suggest coping strategies or even prescribe anxiety medication
  • Distract your pets with their favorite toys and games if they’re willing to come out from their hiding places.
  • If they want to stay out of sight, allow it. Don’t try to coax them out when they sense danger.
  • Turn on some relaxing music, white noise or the TV before the fireworks begin to help mute the sounds from outdoors. Closing windows and curtains can help as well.  
  • Walk dogs before the fireworks begin so they are safely indoors once the noise starts.

Reporting Fireworks  

If you see, hear, or suspect fireworks, please report  the location of fireworks violators to 9-1-1. Make sure to report the location where fireworks are being shot at the time. Police have to observe the activity to take action to stop it. Residents may call 9-1-1 if they have specific location  information to report. Unfortunately, it can be hard to pinpoint the location of the activity as some of the fireworks being used may be professional grade and they can be heard for miles. All area police patrols will be looking for violators to get them to stop.
