Traffic will be Heavier Than Normal on Monday, July 4, 2011 Due to the Town’s Annual 4th of July Parade

The Town of Duck’s seventh annual 4th of July Parade will be held on Monday, July 4, 2011 at 9:00 a.m.

Please plan accordingly if you are travelling through the Town of Duck or coming to work from 8:30 to 11:00 a.m., as traffic may be more congested than usual. The Parade is expected to last for one hour and draw about 7,000 attendees.

The parade route is the same annually. The one-mile parade route begins at the crest of the hill on Scarborough Lane. The route follows Scarborough Lane towards the ocean, turns left onto Ocean Way, and then winds down Christopher Drive finishing back at the corner of Duck Road (NC 12). Please note that no part of the Parade will be on Duck Road (NC 12).

A community celebration will be held immediately following the Parade at the Duck Town Park, 1200 Duck Road. The celebration will feature dancing, music by Ruth Wyand & Friends, refreshments, a very special “Event of a Lifetime” Flash Mob, and the awarding of parade trophies.
