The Leesburg 4th of July Parade is a Bella Ballerina tradition! We love taking part in community events and we invite our dancers to represent the studio in this fantastic tradition!
July 4th, 8:00am - please allow additional time to park and walk to the site. Street closures go into affect at 8:30am so be sure to arrive on time. THIS EVENT IS RAIN OR SHINE!!!!
Ida Lee Park in Leesburg VA is the starting point of the parade. The parade route goes down King Street and ends near Safeway in Leesburg. Upon arrival at Ida Lee Park, go the field designated for parade vehicles & floats and look for the Bella Ballerina banner. See special note about drop off and parking below.
There is no cost to participate! We will provide dancers with everything they need. We only ask that if you sign up to attend, you absolutely attend the event as there are other dancers that we may have to turn away for limited availability! Be sure to complete a separate entry form for each dancer who will be participating.
The parade route is 1 mile long and all participants (children included) should be able to walk independently.
Strollers and wagons for parade participants are not allowed - children must be able to walk the entire route.
We suggest that dancer's under the age of 6 have a parent walk with them in the parade. Please see parent apparel requirements below.
SPECIAL NOTE REGARDING DROP OFF & PARKING: We recommend bringing parade participants to the meeting spot at Ida Lee Park, then driving down to the Walgreens or Rite Aid parking lots near the end of the parade route to park. Watching the parade from this location makes it easy to find your dancer at the conclusion of the parade.
WHAT TO WEAR:
Dancers should wear shorts, light tank top, and sneakers. Dancers will be issued a t-shirt & tutu to wear when they arrive which will be returned at the end of the parade. All participating dancers will also receive a hair bow to keep!
Parents walking in the parade should wear a red shirt of their choice! Please wear comfortable shoes that are made for walking!
