There’s no better place to celebrate the independence of America than in small town USA. The Downtown Luray Annual Children’s Parade kicks off the celebration at 10 a.m. at Inn Lawn Park. Deck the family in red, white, and blue and follow the big festive fire engine through the streets of Luray. Prepare a traditional family picnic or try out one of our downtown diners for a tasty American meal. Stay cool throughout the day with complimentary refreshments provided by the Daughters of the American Revolution.

When the sun starts to set, head over to the banks of the Hawksbill Creek to watch the sky light up for the classic main event: fireworks! Continue the patriotic celebration and enjoy the summer night on the Performing Arts of Luray’s outdoor patio with live music from classic rock cover band, Thundergun. For more information, visit
