Parade route

The Fourth of July Parade through downtown Gillette begins at 10 a.m. Saturday and runs west on Second Street from Osborne to Burma avenues.

This year’s Fourth of July parade will be smaller than normal. Also unusual this year is that it comes with some controversy.

Darla Cotton, IT specialist for Parks and Recreation and the coordinator of the parade, said this year’s parade will have 62 floats. Normally, in an election year, the parade has about a hundred floats, but with the pandemic and the uncertainty and restrictions that followed, there are fewer than usual.
