Being in the parade is a fun and rewarding experience. But, there are some things you need to know.

Drop off and Prep

Drop Off Location

We have created a drop-off area on the south side of our staging area. There will be no dropping off on Cooper Street — the Arlington Police Department will strictly enforce this.

South Drop-off Area: From Park Row Dr., go north on Cooper St., turn right on Doug Russell Rd. Police and event staff will direct you to the drop-off area. As you drop off please help us keep traffic moving by using the designated drop off lanes. You may exit on the south end of the drop-off area where parking is available. See drop off map below for more information.

We encourage the use of the UTA bus shuttles.

Bus Barn Information

A special thank you goes to the Arlington Independent School District that allows the Arlington 4th of July Association covered space at the Bus Barns to be used for float construction.

This is a special privilege that The Association would like to maintain. If you are interested in reserving space for this year’s parade, please contact us.

The Bus Barn is located at the intersection of Davis and Arkansas Lane. And yes, we have electricity there if it is needed.
