I am working on getting all of the information on all of the various 4th of July parades around Howard County and which elected officials, political candidates or organizations will be attending. Here is what I know at this time:


What: 20th Annual River Hill Independence Day Parade
When: 9 a.m. on Thursday, July 4

What: Longfellow Parade
When: 10 a.m. on Thursday, July 4

What: Allview Estates Fourth of July Parade
When: Thursday, July 4, 2019
11:30am – 12:30pm


Atholton Park
6875 Greenleigh Drive
Columbia, MD 21046

Thanks to Howard County Council Member Rigby for the information above about the Allview Estates Parade.

As far as which elected officials, political candidates or political organizations will be in the various parades…this is what I have seen so far on social media:


I can’t not image that this is all…but it is all I have seen up to this point. If you have more information…send it to me…I will update this article or put out something new before the 4th of July.

If I was running for U.S. Congress or Howard County Board of Education in Howard County in 2020 (Jake Pretot, Elijah Cummings, Mark Gosnell and Larry Pretlow)…I might consider to attending one of these parades. Not sure any are planning at this point…just saying…might not be a bad idea. Nothing from Howard County Democratic Party about their attendance at these parades yet…interesting.

I will be at one of these parades on the 4th…not sure which one yet. Hopefully I remember my camera and can get some good pics while out and about that day.
