A Virtual Alternative to Chatham’s 2020 Independence Day Parade!

COVID-19 has disrupted many aspects of our daily life and forced the cancellation of cherished annual events, including Chatham’s July 4th Parade. Since the “traditional” parade brings joy and excitement every year to thousands of residents and visitors, the Parade Committee would like to host a “virtual” parade in its place!  

Individuals, families, local businesses and organizations, previous float registrants, band participants (anyone!) have generously submitted fun pictures and short videos to create our 2020 virtual parade!

According to Channel 18 officials, the parade will be shown at 10 a.m. — about when the annual parade would get to town hall — on Channel 18 and the Chatham station’s YouTube page. The video will be repeated on Channel 18 at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m.
