Celebrating the Decades: Choteau’s 2023 Independence Day Parade Theme!

Get Ready to Celebrate the Decades with Choteau’s 2023 Independence Day Parade!

The Choteau Chamber of Commerce is thrilled to announce the theme of the 2023 Independence Day Parade: “Celebrating the Decades 1913-2023.” At our May 10th meeting, the Chamber membership voted to select this theme, which will allow us to showcase the history and cultural changes that have occurred in Choteau over the past 110 years.

The parade will take place on July 4th, 2023, and we encourage all residents, businesses, and organizations in the area to participate. The parade is a beloved Choteau tradition that brings our community together to celebrate our nation’s independence, and we can’t wait to see how everyone incorporates the theme into their floats and displays.

We invite participants to choose a decade from 1913 to 2023 and use it as inspiration for their parade entry. You could dress up in vintage clothing, decorate your float with images and symbols from the era, or play music from that decade. You’re also welcome to showcase important events, people, or businesses from Choteau’s history during that decade.

This year’s parade promises to be a memorable one, and we can’t wait to celebrate with all of you. So start brainstorming your ideas and get ready to bring your creativity and enthusiasm to the streets of Choteau on July 4th!

If you have any questions or would like to register your entry for the parade, please contact the Choteau Chamber of Commerce at choteauchamber@gmail.com.
