The Fourth of July parade represents part of what’s best in Edina.
Fourth of July
What makes a superior July 4th fireworks experience? The right company, weather and location are essential, but what about the show itself? Fairview Southdale Hospital Foundation gives a generous sum to the Edina Community Foundation to fund the annual fireworks display. And the task, completed a few years ago, of choosing a pyrotechnic provider was not taken lightly.
Each summer, more than 70 floats glide down a stretch of 50th Street for the Edina July 4 Parade. As the intricately designed units move along the parade route, you’ve likely oohed, aahed, waved, and perhaps wondered how they execute it all.
