An impressive parade alternates its route between Smyrna and Clayton on or about the morning of July 4th. This is followed by many activities and exhibits in Municipal Park. In the evening, the association hosts one of the largest fireworks shows on Delmarva at the park.
Firemen (and women), as well as the Auxiliary, can be seen marching through the streets as they prepare for the big day. Smyrna and Clayton each have won as the best appearing units with and without a band, respectively, many times since the competition began.
The parade is most often in Dover on the third weekend in September.
Later in October, folks that live in the historic downtown area of Clayton should not be surprised to see three hundred or more costumed children trick-or-treating!
