About the event
The Dunwoody Fourth of July Parade was founded in 1976 as part of the nation’s bicentennial celebration. It continued for just five years, but was revived in 1991, after the Gulf War, as a way to honor returning service members.
It has been an annual tradition ever since, and is said to be Georgia’s largest Fourth of July parade.
