Patriotic Pride on Display at 4th of July Parades In and Around El Paso
Attending a fireworks show isn’t the only way to celebrate our country's independence.
If you’re looking to commemorate the Fourth with a good old-fashioned parade of beauty queens, decorated cars, and people decked out in patriotic gear some local service organizations have you covered all across the Borderland.
Grab a lawn chair and pop a squat along the following streets. And don’t forget your American flag.
