Choteau Chamber of Commerce 4th of July Parade

The Choteau Chamber of Commerce 4th of July Parade starts at 10am, so get a good seat on Main Avenue to view the cleverly crafted floats, the horsemen and horsewomen, and the kids’ decorated bikes, trikes, and wagons!

Parade Route

We are opting for the traditional parade route this year, with the minor addition of asking parade floats/participants to drive past the Benefis Teton Medical Center so the residents there can get a chance to see the parade! Floats and parade entrants will meet around the Teton County Courthouse at 9am and the parade kicks off at 10am.

Parade Float Registration

There are 5 categories for parade prizes: floats, cars, tractors, open, and kids. Prizes for floats are 1st place – $300, 2nd place – $200, and 3rd place – $100, and for cars, tractors, kids, and open categories the prizes are 1st place – $150, 2nd place – $100, and 3rd place $50!

If you would like to be in the parade without being judged, please select the “Non-judged Entry” version (not eligible for prizes).

Over $1,900 in prizes will be given away!
