Parade Party Invitation Ideas
Red, White and Blue invitations with party information written inside. 

Tell guests to bring their bikes, tricycles, scooters, wagons and gold carts to the party to decorate for a fun parade through the neighborhood. 

In the invitations give each guest an entry number ( on a 8 x 11 piece of paper print out a large number in black ink) and ask them to bring it to the party.   Or create smaller entries (about index card size) laminate them and attach to a lanyard for them to wear in the parade.

To include neighbors ask everyone on your block to participate in the parade.  The more the merrier! 


Parade Party Decoration Ideas
Decorate in red, white and blue or bright primary colors. 

Decorate the party tables with red, white and blue buntings and tablecloths.  

If there is a park nearby set up tables with the cake and food at the park and have it be on the parade route. 

Before the party send out a notice to the neighbors on your block and let them know the time and date of the parade. 

Ask them to participate either by entering a float in the parade, moving any cars that are parked on the street or coming outside and clapping as the parade passes by.  

Parade Entries
Set up stations for decorating parade entries.  For convenience before the party bundle up several rolls of flags, crepe paper, streamers, tape, etc. in Ziploc bags and hand them out to guests as they arrive.  Ask parents to stay and help decorate younger kids entries.  When all the entries are completed line them up in order and head off to the park, or around the block a few times.   Let the birthday child lead the way and make sure several adults are spaced in between the entries and at the back to help.  Don't forget to take along a battery powered music player to play patriotic music during the parade. 


Parade Party Games
Having a parade is probably going to be enough fun to keep everyone busy, but if you are at the park there are many games you can set up to keep kids occupied while others are finishing up eating.  Tug of war, three legged races, sidewalk chalk, hopscotch, etc. are fun and easy to set up.
