July 4th Picnic in the Park in Chapel Hill

The festivities begin at 9 am with a parade along West Tryon Street; prizes will be awarded for Most Patriotic, Most Patriotic Pet, and Most Hillsborough. Then, at 10 am, a public reading of the Declaration of Independence at the Old Orange County Courthouse will celebrate 238 years of American Independence. From there the festivities will continue at the Farmers Market Pavilion and River Park until 3 pm, where three bands will perform throughout the day, and pony rides and lawn games will add to the day's activities. Pack a picnic lunch or enjoy food from one of the food trucks at the park. But make room for dessert, as there will be a pie bake-off during the afternoon.
