Details on Burlington's 4th of July Parade, Road Closures

By: Rich Hosford

Celebrate our independence with friends, family and fellow members of the Burlington Community with the town’s annual 4th of July parade. 


The parade will start at 11 a.m. on Saturday, July 4th at the Burlington Presbyterian Church at 335 Cambridge Street and will end at Memorial Elementary School on Winn Street. 


Highlights of the parade include marching bands, New England Patriots Cheerleaders, members of the Massachusetts State Police Mounted Unit and Batman in the Batmobile. Dougie Davis, a six-year-old boy with an inoperable brain tumor who became an honorary firefighter with the Burlington Fire Department last year after saying it was his wish to do so, is also expected to be riding a fire engine again this year. 


The Grand Marshalls of the 4th of July parade this year will be Virginia and John Mooney.


Residents should be aware that there will be some temporary road closures due to the parade. Wilmington Road at Cambridge Street to Skilton Lane will be shut down in both directions at 10 a.m. 


Additionally, Winn Street and Cambridge Street to Skilton Lane will be shut down at 11 a.m. Northbound traffic on Winn Street will be diverted to Center Street. When the parade reaches Sears Street, Winn Street will be shut down and diverted to Peach Orchard Road. 


Town officials say they appreciate the public’s patience with the road closures and detours.
