Racine loves their parade so much that they’ve made it the largest in the Midwest. Last year they had everything from the hometown semi-pro football team to live replicas of national monuments, bands, and floats.
The parade starts at the intersections of Goold and Main Streets and runs south down Main Street through Downtown then turns west on 14th Street. Arrive early to get a curbside seat! Pre-parade featuring antique cars starts at 8:30 a.m.
Spectacular fireworks can be viewed anywhere along the shores of Lake Michigan starting at dusk.
