Capitol Hill July 4 Parade – 2024

Posted on May 7th, 2024

CHRS Contingent, 2023

It’s that time of year again! The Jeanne Phil Meg Team at Compass Real Estate is organizing the traditional Capitol Hill July 4th Parade!  As in past years, CHRS will field a contingent.  

The organizers assure us that “The parade will happen rain or shine or smog!”

We need to report for duty at 9:30 am near the underpass on 8th Street and Virginia Avenue SE, but won’t step off before 10am – or later.  We’ll have lollipops to distribute along the parade route, which extends north on 8th Street to D Street, where it turns left on the corner and disbands.

We’d love to have as many members as possible join us – and invite their friends, neighbors, and anyone else with an interest in community fun.  An RSVP is not required but if you know you’re coming, please shoot an email to with “July 4th Volunteer” in the subject line.

Keep in mind that there are significant street closures beginning by 8:30 am.  So, don’t try to arrive by car after that time.
