It’s back! The City of Decatur will hold its 2022 Independence Day celebration in its traditional format, for the first time since 2019.
Downtown Decatur is the place to be this Fourth of July, with a community parade, a band concert, and fireworks display.
The celebration takes place on Monday, July 4, 2022.
Details are below.
Anyone can participate in the Pied Piper Parade — it’s free and open to the whole community. If you want to walk, bike, or skate, just put on your red, white, and blue and show up for the parade lineup.
Parade lineup time is 5:30 p.m., at the First Baptist Church of Decatur, located at 308 Clairemont Ave. The parade will begin at 6 p.m.
After the parade, stick around for a Concert on the Square.
It starts at 7 p.m. in the community bandstand on the Square. The Callanwolde Concert Band will perform.
Fireworks start after dark, around 9 p.m., on the Square.
You are encouraged to find a safe, socially distanced place to watch the 15-20 minute show that will launch from the top of the DeKalb County Parking Deck. Streets in the fireworks fall-out zone will be closed.
