Parade Information - Marlow Chamber of Commerce: 580-658-2212
The Fourth of July not only celebrates the Independence Day of United States, it is a Marlow tradition. Since 1892, Marlow has celebrated Independence Day with all the charms of a hometown festival.
The day begins with an old-fashioned, small town parade stretching six blocks and welcoming classic cars, decorated bicycles, marching bands and horse-drawn wagons.
Then, the fun moves into historic Redbud Park - along the famed Chisholm Trail - with food, games, shopping and a staple of the Old Fashioned Fourth of July, bingo that's still a quarter per card. Music from local bands and singers fills the air while old friends and neighbors get reacquainted. A carnival provides fun for all ages throughout the day and night.
That evening, the free concert begins followed a grand finale of fireworks at 9:30 p.m.
