Key Biscayne 4th of July Parade
The Key Biscayne 4th of July Parade is one of the longest standing traditions on Key Biscayne, and the most attended of all the annual events. In 2019 we celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Key Biscayne 4th of July Parade and we intend to make it our biggest and best yet.
Started in 1959 by Art Yehle and Tommy Sikes, the idea was to have the community gather together in this very small town (back then) and celebrate the patriotism and Americana symbolism that is the 4th of July. Since then, the KB4 Parade has grown yearly and become a Miami tradition, now the largest and longest running event of its kind in South Florida.
Sixty years later, we are proud to say that there are over 50 participants marching down Crandon Blvd., performing for over 10,000 spectators.
The Key Biscayne 4th of July Parade Committee is a non-profit organization, under the Key Biscayne Community Foundation’s charitable umbrella. It is organized and coordinated by a small group of dedicated volunteers, who meet for seven months before July 4th in order to deliver a wonderful local-tradition while celebrating our national independence.
