The Crozet Volunteer Fire Department (CVFD) parade starts at 5:00 PM at Crozet Elementary School and goes down Crozet Avenue through downtown Crozet to Claudius Crozet Park.  Mr. V.L. James, lifetime Crozet Volunteer Fireman, is the Parade Grand Marshall and the Richmond Shriners’ ACCA Mini-Patrol cars are one of the many entries in the parade who’s theme is “Only in America”.

There is still time to submit your entry to be in the parade! Submit it as soon as possible to ensure you are included in the lineup.  Lineup will be based on a first come basis.  Horses/livestock will be placed near or at the end of the parade.  Lineup will begin at 4:00 P.M. at Crozet Elementary School and end at Claudius Crozet Park.  There will be field judging for Fire and Rescue apparatus at Claudius Crozet Park after the parade. Awards will be presented around 6:30 P.M.

If you would like to be a part of the 2014 Crozet Fireman’s parade please see http://www.crozetfire.org/news/fullstory/newsid/208061
for details and access to a Parade Entry Form.

The celebration begins at Claudius Crozet Park after the parade, where there will be live music by local band, Abbey Road, the ultimate Rock and Roll Beatles party band.  There will be free children’s games and amusements, including a bounce-house, laser tag, and ultimate athlete challenge.  There will be pony rides, and the third annual ball game between the Peachtree League coaches and the Crozet Fireman.

Bring a lawn chair if you want to be comfortable as you watch the events.
Traditional American Fourth of July fare will be available, including pork barbecue, hot dogs, hamburgers, pizza, popcorn, sno-cones and more. Starr Hill beer and Bold Rock Cider will be available as well as  50/50 raffles, and prize drawings. Pam Garrison and Vinny Kice from HitKicker 99.7 will MC the event.  Event culminates at 9:30 PM with a stupendous fireworks show. (We have it at 9:30 PM so it’s late enough to be dark, but not too late to for the youngsters to view the show.)

All we ask is a donation of $3 per person (children 12 and under are free) as  you enter to park to help pay for the fireworks and event expenses.
