Olde Fashioned Fourth of July

Join us in Historic Downtown Apex as we celebrate America's Birthday! Kids 12 & under may participate in Uncle Sam's Parade of Wheels down Salem Street. Decorate your bike, wagon, tricycle, or other non-motorized vehicle in patriotic colors to celebrate our nation's independence. The Parade starts at the corner of Salem & Chatham Streets at noon, so be sure to line up early to save your place. Festivities will end with the Apex Fire Department's Splash Down!  Please note:  Helmets are required for the Parade of Wheels.
