The 4th of July is a festive time on Cape Cod! Wellfleet always has a fabulous parade, starting with the classic car parade, followed by the floats. In years past, the antique cars were mixed in with the floats and when the weather was hot and the parade slow and well… those cars overheated. So, the solution was to send the cars through first.
This year, the classic car parade starts at 9:30, the floats at 10 (Thursday, July 4th). The parade starts at Wellfleet Harbor runs down Holbrook Avenue, turns onto Main Street, passes the judges in front of the Town Hall, continues on past the Methodist and Congregational Churches and turns onto Commercial Street finally ending at the pier. Be sure to get into town early for parking & before the roads start to close!
