Fourth of July Parade

4th of July

The parade allows marching bands, walking groups, full sized floats - whatever it might be it just has to 

match the decade of your choosing - be as original as possible to avoid duplicating other entries.

New this year...  Family Wagon Floats

Enter your family (any groups are welcome, you don't have to be related!)  into the East Moline 60th Annual AMVETS 4th of July Parade in the “Family Wagon” category.  

What’s that you ask?  A small child's wagon is the base.  The theme this year is "Through the Decades"

Think of songs, TV shows, music groups, movies, and more when you think about how your float would represent your decade.  


  • A wagon must be used as the main decoration.
  • Music may be used so long as it matches your decade.
  • Entry must be labeled (for judging) – Title, Decade, Group Name
  • One adult (minimum) required per entry
  • No live animals


 Family Night* - a hotel room and large pizza will be given out based on the number of entries we receive.
Ultimately, we plan to give out 6 prizes - one per decade. If we receive less than 60 entries it will be 1 prize per 10 entries.
