The Randolph Kiwanis Freedom Parade - one of the largest Fourth of July parades in New Jersey and a great annual tradition in Randolph - is organized and run each year by our all-volunteer, not-for-profit Randolph Kiwanis Club in partnership with Randolph Township.
Each year the Freedom Parade kicks off at the Mount Fern Methodist Church (443 Quaker Church Road, Randolph, NJ 07869), proceeds down Quaker Church Road, makes a right onto Center Grove Road, crosses Route 10 and finishes at the lower parking lot of the County College of Morris in Randolph.
Appearing in 2013 for the first time as Lead Color Guard was a unit of the United States Marine Corps - Golf Company of the 2nd Battalion, 25th Marines. In 2012, the Freedom Parade hosted the 78th Army Band - the largest military band in New Jersey.
The Freedom Parade also has a strong historical focus and includes Revolutionary War and Civil War re-enactment and "living history" units.
Community groups showcased in the Freedom Parade have included the Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts, the West Side Dance Center, the Salvation Army, martial arts groups and many more. The Freedom Parade also has featured Clydesdale horses, military and vintage vehicles, clowns and other attractions.
