4th of July Pagosa Style! A Red, White & Blue Freedom Parade!

Come out Tuesday morning to see Pagosa Weather in this wonderful small town event & get your squishy cloud!

The Pagosa Springs 4th of July Parade has been a favorite annual event for decades! Every school, organization and business turns out to entertain locals and visitors alike!

The Pagosa Weather Team will join the parade for our second year. We’ll be led by Mark Langford in his blue Jeep Wrangler. Shawn and I will be handing out stress “Weather Clouds”. Be sure to give us a shout, “Hey, Shawn!” or “We love Pagosa Weather!”. Our Weather Buddies will be handing out candy to the kids.


The weather is going to be Parade Perfect. Clear to partly cloudy skies to start the day with light southerly winds switching to the northeast at 5-10mph during the parade. Low temperatures downtown will start off in the low 50s in the early morning hours and warm to the mid 70s by the time the parade starts at 10am and heat up to the low 80s by the time the parade ends. It will be shorts and a T-shirt weather! There is a chance of a stray shower but not till early afternoon.

Start Time

“The parade starts at 10:00 a.m. featuring our 2023 Grand Marshall, Jann Pitcher. You will know the parade has started when you hear the sounds of the San Juan Squadron and look to the west as they kick-off the parade with their annual fly over.”

Be sure to get there early to find your favorite viewing spot! Also, bring a chair to get comfortable and watch all 57 floats, motorcades, and marchers in the procession!

“Make sure to arrive early to find parking and pick your viewing location. Announcers will be located near the entrance of the Overlook parking area so you can hear details about all the awesome parade participants! Watch for additional information to be distributed about voting for your favorite parade entry.”

Parade route 2023

“Please note that on-street parking is strictly prohibited along the designated parade route. Parade watchers who park in lots that exit onto the designated parade route will have to remain in the parking lot until the parade is over and the Highway has been cleared and opened to traffic. “

“So, instead of rushing home after the parade, hang out around Town and enjoy the Park-to-Park Artisan & Food Market sponsored by the Pagosa Springs Area Chamber of Commerce, the many local shops and restaurants located downtown, and the San Juan Riverwalk. Additional event activities can be found on the Visit Pagosa Springs website at https://visitpagosasprings.com/july4th “

FIREWORKS will start at sundown (approx. 9:30 p.m.) and can be viewed from multiple locations in town but Yamaguchi Park is one of the favorite gathering spots.”

Huge thanks to the Tourism Board in making Pagosa Weather’s entry in the parade possible.

I grew up in Montana where my love of the mountains is rooted. I was in the Air Force, forecasting aviation weather, for 24 years. I had eight assignments and my favorites were Colorado, Alaska, Korea, and Germany. I deployed a number of times including to Iraq and Afghanistan. After RV traveling for nine years, we found paradise in Pagosa. Here we enjoy playing outside in the spectacular San Juan mountains!
