The 138th America's Birthday Parade
"America the Beautiful"
Celebrating Service to Country and Community Since 1878
America’s Birthday Parade is an incredible spectacle of elaborate floats, choreographed dances and live performances – including some of the country’s most talented marching bands. Parading through the streets of downtown St. Louis in the shadow of America’s tallest monument, the Gateway Arch, this classic summer event is a celebration of our city, our people, our community and our country… from sea to shining sea.
