Please plan accordingly if you are traveling through the Town of Duck on the morning of July 4. Businesses are asked to advise staff and delivery vehicles of the anticipated congestion and potential delays. Traffic may be more congested than usual between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. The parade is expected to last for one hour and draw between 5,000-7,000 attendees.
No part of the parade will be on Duck Road (NC 12) and the road will remain open. The one-mile parade route is the same annually, and begins at the crest of the hill on Scarborough Lane, travels east towards the ocean, turns left onto Ocean Way, and then continues onto Christopher Drive to end at Pamela Court. Be aware that there will be increased numbers of pedestrians along and crossing Duck Road (NC 12) and slow moving vehicles entering and exiting the parade route and staging areas at Scarborough Lane and Christopher Drive.
A Community Celebration will be held immediately following the parade at the Duck Town Park, 1200 Duck Road. The celebration will feature music by Just Playn’ Dixieland, cold refreshments, and the awarding of parade trophies.
