Dexter Avenue

The Saturday celebration begins at 10 AM with a parade of Alabama people, places and history. From Court Square Fountain, a cavalcade of marching bands, city floats, living history on wheels—such as the USS Alabama Battleship Park and US Space and Rocket Center—elected officials, cute kids, beauty queens and special Alabama Notables will travel Dexter Avenue toward the State Capitol.

More than 70 entries from around the state showcase our Alabama communities.

The parade will conclude with the more than 150 member Bicentennial All Star Band performing an original composition:
