July 4th Parade Celebrates 50 Years

of Patriotic Tradition

The Peachtree City July 4th Parade is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. The parade, which started in 1973 as the brainchild of Sallie Satterthwaite, has grown from a small gathering of participants to an annual event that attracts more than 10,000 people.

Last year, the parade had 125 entries, with participants coming from either Peachtree City residents and businesses or Fayette County residents and businesses. The parade awards trophies for several categories, including the Mayor's Trophy, Most Creative, Most Patriotic, Grand Marshal Trophy, and the top three spots for golf cart entries. The entries are judged by three independent judges, with the awards presented at the next council meeting after July 4.

Registration for the 2023 parade opens May 8 for Peachtree City residents and businesses and May 22 for Fayette County residents and businesses. Participants can register at Due to the limited space available, parade participants are encouraged to sign up quickly. The parade may fill up before the June 20, 2023, deadline.

The parade starts at 9AM at the intersection of Pinehurst Drive and Peachtree Parkway. It winds down Peachtree Parkway for 1.8 miles before turning left onto McIntosh Trail where it ends at the McIntosh Trail Recreation Complex.

"This event has become a cherished tradition in our community, and we look forward to continuing to celebrate our nation's independence with all of our residents and neighbors," said Parade Director Maria Puckett.

The Peachtree City July 4th Parade is not only a celebration of the nation's independence but also a celebration of the community, bringing together residents and businesses from both Peachtree City and Fayette County to honor this special day. With its 50th anniversary, this year's parade promises to be a milestone event that residents won't want to miss.
