It's parade time! The July 4th Parade Committee invites you downtown Clarkston for a long standing community tradition. For over 80 years, Independence Township has celebrated Independence Day with a parade, and with your continued support and contributions it has grown to be the #1 parade in Oakland County on July 4th.  The Parade Committee organizers are:  the Clarkston Area Optimist Club, Clarkston Lions Club, Mt. Zion Church and the Clarkston Knights of Columbus.

The parade theme this year is:  "Land of the FREE because of the BRAVE"

The parade begins at 10:00 am and runs until approximately 11:30 am.
