The Peachtree City July Fourth Parade is celebrating its fifth anniversary this year. The parade, which started in 1973 has grown from a small gathering of participants to an annual event that attracts more than 10,000 people. “With its fifieth anniversary, this year’s parade promises to be a milestone event that residents won’t want to miss,” according to a press release from the city. 

Last year, the parade had 125 entries, with participants coming from either Peachtree City residents and businesses or Fayette County residents and businesses. The parade awards trophies for several categories, including the Mayor’s Trophy, Most Creative, Most Patriotic, Grand Marshal Trophy and the top three spots for golf cart entries.  

Registration for the 2023 parade opens May 8 for Peachtree City residents and businesses.  Due to the limited space available, parade participants are encouraged to sign up quickly.  The parade may fill up before the June 20, 2023, deadline.

The parade starts at 9AM at the intersection of Pinehurst Drive and Peachtree Parkway and winds down Peachtree Parkway for nearly two miles before turning left onto McIntosh Trail where it ends at the McIntosh Trail Recreation Complex.

“This event has become a cherished tradition in our community, and we look forward to continuing to celebrate our nation’s independence with all of our residents and neighbors,” said Parade Director Maria Puckett in a press release from the city.

The Peachtree City July 4th Parade is not only a celebration of the nation’s independence but also a celebration of the community, bringing together residents and businesses from both Peachtree City and Fayette County to honor this special day.
