The Menomonee Falls community is proud to host three parades for our friends and neighbors each year. The Knights of Columbus run the Memorial Day Parade.The Optimist Club sponsors and manages the Independence Day Parade and the Christmas Parade. This website has information for spectators, participants and donors about the three parades held in Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin.
Memorial Day Parade
The Memorial Day Parade is held on Memorial Day at 10:00 am and starts on Main Street at Harrison Avenue, traveling to downtown Menomonee Falls and continues west on Main Street, turning north on Grand Avenue and ending at the Neu’s Building Center parking lot.
Independence Day Parade
The Independence Day Parade is always held on July 3, and is the largest of the three parades held in Menomonee Falls. This parade is very well attended and precedes the annual fireworks display held at Menomonee Falls High School. “Claiming” (a.k.a. saving your spot) for a parade viewing space is allowed during a pre-scheduled time slot as determined by the Menomonee Falls Police Department.
The Christmas Parade is held at 4:30 pm on the Sunday after Thanksgiving. The Christmas Parade route starts at the intersection of Main Street and Harrison, travels through Downtown Menomonee Falls west on Main Street to Appleton Avenue, turns left at Appleton Avenue and travels south to Appleton Avenue and Arthur Avenue where the parade ends.
