East Longmeadow boasts the largest 4th of July parade in Western Massachusetts! The parade route makes a turn at the corner of Elm and Mapleshade – right where St. Paul is located! SO for the 4 hours that parade goers are around the grounds, St. Paul has organized a number of vendors, food trucks, entertainment, and games for children, PLUS clean bathrooms, cool air conditioning, free parking, and free cold water! Join us on the lawn, 9am till 1pm, and watch the parade in a safe, family-friendly, hassle-free environment. Vendors are not charged to participate, and whatever they make, they keep, so come support your community!
