The 34th Annual 4th on Broadway Finalizing Festivities

The finishing touches are being put on the 2024 4th on Broadway. From the parade step-off that will take a little different route, to the final fireworks, this is the do-not-miss event of the summer.

Broadway Festivals officials announced a posthumous memorial in honor of Don Caldwell as the Bolton Oil Parade Grand Marshal. Members of his family will ride in the lead vehicles.

“Don was the driving force behind the event since its inception,” said Katie Sandifer, director of the event. “With his recent passing, it was only fitting to honor him in this way and celebrate his continuing legacy.”
