Duncanville July 4 Parade

The Duncanville Lions Club and the City of Duncanville are inviting all citizens of Duncanville and other Best Southwest cities to celebrate our Nation’s Independence Day by attending the annual Fourth of July Parade. The parade will begin promptly at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, July 4th.

The theme of the 2018 parade, “Spirit of Service” was inspired by the true feelings & emotions that the word spirit evokes. An individual’s heart for patriotism helps channel that spirit into service…. service to others, service to community and service to our country. Honoring a public servant with over 18 years of service to the community, longtime Duncanville Rotarian and former Mayor David Green will be serving as Grand Marshal for the parade.
