Chairs Herald Piedmont’s Fourth of July Parade.
Since the last day of June, Highland Avenue has been lined with chairs of every sort and description. Chairs cover crosswalks and even a bus stop, as eager parade watchers place their chairs in the public right of way for front row seating. Some residents along Highland Avenue host a parade party.
Piedmont’s annual Fourth of July parade will flow down Highland Avenue from Park Way Avenue starting at 11:00 a.m.. Neighborhoods, musicians, antique cars, and organizations participate along with a yearly favorite, Piedmont’s own volunteer marching band. The parade terminates at the Main Park near the Excedra followed by music, food, and picnics in the park.
