City Anniversary Festival

Parade - Saturday, April 25, 2020, 11 AM

This year's Anniversary Parade will step off at 11 a.m. from Hyattsville Middle School (6001 42nd Avenue) and follow 42nd Avenue, Jefferson Street, and Hamilton Street until it reaches the reviewing stage at Magruder Park. You can see a map of the parade route with more details in English and in Spanish here.

We're looking for groups of all ages and sizes to participate! We'd love to see your community groups, church groups, scouts, school and other youth groups, classic cars, marching bands, majorettes, step teams, fire & police units. So gather your friends and make banners, flags and t-shirts; decorate bikes, wagons and baby strollers; build a float that represents your group and join in the fun!

To participate in the parade, please complete the online Parade Participant Form..
