July 4th Corvallis Parade
July 4 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Once again it’s time for the All-American, Fabulous, Fantastic, Anyone-Can-Join Fourth of July Parade, which starts 10:00 a.m. and originates at Central Park in downtown Corvallis….on Thursday, July 4th, of course!
All greyhounds/sight hounds and their families are invited to assemble at 9:30 a.m. at the Corvallis Arts Center, located in Central Park in downtown Corvallis (the same location as previous years). If tradition continues, the route will proceed east along Monroe Avenue from Eighth Street to First Street, then south along First Street to Adams Avenue, then west one block to Second Street, where it continues south to the skate park. This year, those of us with dogs are asked to line up behind those not walking their pets.
Bring water for your pooches, dress ’em up in red, white & blue and be prepared for lots of “ooooohs” and “ahhhhs” as we walk the parade route. Dashes to the sidelines for lots of pets and hugs (for the greys, of course!) are encouraged!
The parade takes about 30-45 minutes to complete.
Those of you who have taken part in this parade in past years know how much fun this parade can be, as the Greyhounds have been one of the most popular participants!
This is a GREYT opportunity to promote Greyhound adoption and share the joy of having a Greyhound as a member of the family.
See you there!
