Northern Arizona University will be closed Friday, July 3,
in observance of the United States’ 233rd birthday, but you can show your NAU pride at the Flagstaff Chamber of Commerce’s 12th annual Independence Day Parade.

The parade begins 9 a.m. Saturday in downtown Flagstaff. Participants in the NAU entry should arrive at the staging location by 8:30 a.m. on Sullivan Street between Beaver and Leroux streets.

Faculty, staff and students, along with alumni, family and friends are invited to join NAU along the mile-long parade route.

“Wear your NAU gear or navy blue, and bring water as it will be warm,” said Molly Munger, director for NAU community relations. “But most of all we want everyone to have fun.”
