Tuesday, July 3, 7:30 to 9:30 p.m.
Kick off this year’s Independence Day celebration with the phenomenal Blue Ash Montgomery Symphony Orchestra’s annual July 3 symphony concert at Montgomery Park. The festivities start at 7:30 p.m. with the playing of the national anthem followed by a mix of patriotic selections. Bring a blanket or lawn chair and enjoy the beautiful park setting while listening to the Blue Ash Montgomery Symphony Orchestra celebration of America’s holiday.
Come early and eat dinner in the park! Starting at 6:30 p.m., the Rotary Club of Northeast Cincinnati will be grilling items for purchase as a dinner option before the concert.
Wednesday, July 4, 10 a.m.
Put on marking shoes, design a float or create an entertaining entry in patriotic fashion for Montgomery’s longtime tradition — the annual Independence Day parade.
Parade entries will assemble at designated locations on Cooper Road at 8:30 a.m. with official kickoff at 10 a.m. Parade applications are found here. Applications will be accepted until June 22, 2018.

Kids! Be in the July 4th Parade!
Meet at Montgomery Elementary at 9:45 a.m.
Children ages 5 and older are invited to ride their decorated bike in the City of Montgomery Independence Day Parade (not the entire route but a little less than a half a mile.)
Show creativity by adding streamers, cards, tassels, balloons, flags, and flowers to bikes. Decorate bikes at home and then put on the final touches onsite before the patriotic ride. Parents are welcome to walk along and may bring a bag to collect the parade candy. After the parade, meet at the City Hall carport for three free tickets to use at the July 4 festival immediately following the parade. No registration required. Kids on bikes will form up at 9675 Montgomery Road to start the parade. For more information regarding the Kids on Bike parade unit, please contact Recreation Specialist Sarah Fink at 513-792-8317 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Independence Day Festival
Wednesday, July 4, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Americana at its best! Fun kids’ games, corn-on-the-cob, hot dogs, pony rides, music and an ALL-STAR ballgame round out this year’s festival. Many local vendors will be selling great food and drinks along the path in Montgomery Park: Graeter’s Ice Cream, Rotary Club of Northeast Cincinnati, Pit to Plate BBQ, Snowie Bus and more. Live music by Eden and the beer booth will be a great gathering spot for adults. Find a hillside spot to watch two local baseball teams play in the noon All-Star game. Be sure to join us for this full day of family fun!
Come and celebrate our country, enjoy the summer, and share great times with friends and family.
