CCC "Virtual" Fourth of July Parade


Coconino Community College will be hosting a “virtual” Fourth of July Parade this year, featuring Shoebox Floats!

That’s right! Dress up any kind of shoebox with your organization’s Fourth of July spirit and get it into the parade. The event is FREE and available to everybody throughout Coconino County (scholarship donations are always welcome).

The entries will be lined up and filmed in procession – complete with a Grand Marshall. The parade will make its worldwide YouTube debut on the Fourth of July at 10 a.m. for everybody to enjoy at these links: and

“Our communities are really struggling right now,” said CCC President Colleen A. Smith. “And it seems like a good idea to celebrate our communities and our nation.”

The rules are simple:
Decorate a shoe box with themes that celebrate our communities, the holiday and please keep it family-oriented.

Prizes will be awarded for the best float in the following categories:
Business and Industry
Family Unit

Celebrating 2020 Graduates

CCC employees are encouraged to enter floats.
