Old Hilliardfest in the Hilliard, Ohio 4th of July Parade 2018

The Hilliard Civic Association is excited to announce that the Old Hilliardfest Art & Street Fair will again be represented in the Hilliard 4th of July Parade festivities on July 4th, 2018.

Old Hilliardfest's will bring back their award-winning parade float, which will include a rolling performance from one of OHF2017's Americana Main Stage Acts, the HELLROYS. The Americana-themed band will perform some of their original hits as the float makes its way down the parade route.

Come join us on the streets of Hilliard to enjoy the music of the HELLROYS and all of the community's other exciting 4th of July floats. The parade will begin at 10am on July 4th, 2018 and depart south from the Main Street entrance to the Franklin County Fairgrounds.

**THE ROUTE IS CHANGED FOR THIS YEAR DUE TO CONSTRUCTION.** It will depart from the same location but end at Hilliard United Methodist Church instead of Heritage Middle School. The official route will be: Franklin County Fairgrounds; Main Street; Norwich Street; west on Cemetery Road to the roundabout; south on Main Street; and end at the United Methodist Church.
