The Lumberjack community is invited to celebrate the holiday during the Flagstaff Chamber of Commerce’s annual Independence Day Parade in downtown Flagstaff at 9 a.m. Saturday, July 4. The university will be closed Friday, July 3 in observance of the holiday.

More than 100 floats, including several entries from NAU, will line the parade route that begins on Beaver Street and Elm Avenue and ends at San Francisco Street and Elm Avenue.

Be a part of the NAU entry and walk with colleagues, students and alumni and represent the university in red, white and True Blue fashion. NAU employees can earn HealthyU points for walking in the parade by registering with ask-eaw@nau.edu. Participants should plan to be at the staging area at San Francisco Street and Hunt Avenue by 8:30 a.m. and can contact Alyssa Deaver with questions.
