Celebrate Independence Day during annual parade

The Lumberjack community is invited to celebrate the holiday and come show support for NAU during the Flagstaff Chamber of Commerce’s annual Independence Day Parade in downtown Flagstaff at 9 a.m. Friday, July 4.

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. While NAU has enough volunteers to participate, everyone is encouraged to grab a front row seat and cheer on fellow Lumberjacks representing the university in red, white and True Blue fashion.

The university will be closed July 4 in observance of the holiday.
