Fourth of July Parades

Lakeside’s Fourth of July celebration begins at 10 a.m. with the popular Bike Parade departing from Perry Park. Participants of all ages should arrive by 9:30 a.m. along the lakefront path near Perry Park with an already-decorated bike, scooter or stroller.

In advance of the Bike Parade, we encourage families to designate a place for children to find their families after they’ve finished passing through the parade. The parade ends at the intersection of Maple Avenue and Second Street, but families typically meet their children on Third Street between Oak and Maple Avenues.

Immediately following the Bike Parade is Lakeside’s unique Fourth of July Parade with decorated golf carts, antique cars and floats. This year’s parade will be one of the largest in Lakeside’s recent history. 

The Honorary Grand Marshal will lead the main parade from Fourth Street down Harsh Road and precede west down Second Street ending at Maple Avenue. In the case of inclement weather, this event will be canceled. 

Registration: To sign up, please download the registration form and return to Lakeside Chautauqua, Attn: Fourth of July Float Parade, 236 Walnut Ave., Lakeside, OH 43440 no later than noon on Saturday, July 1, 2023.

 Please note: Lakeside Chautauqua reserves the right to review the content of all parade entries. Floats containing political content or offensive subject matter will not be permitted to participate in the parade. Please honor this requirement to enable Lakeside to present a family parade suitable for all ages. 

The event is finished.
