Rainbow City Marching Band Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Celebrate Kirkland

July 4 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

After a multi-year hiatus, Rainbow City Marching Band is set to make a triumphant return to the Celebrate Kirkland 4th of July event. This comeback marks a significant moment, as the band’s vibrant performances were once a staple of the festivities. Our return is not just a revival of tradition but also a rekindling of the joy and unity that our music inspires in the heart of Kirkland.

Traditionally, Rainbow City Marching Band’s participation in the Celebrate Kirkland event has been a highlight, showcasing the diversity and talent within the community. Our performances, featuring a repertoire that ranges from stirring patriotic tunes to contemporary hits, have always been a crowd-pleaser, drawing people from all walks of life to join in the celebration. As we march down the streets this year, the band will carry with us the legacy of past parades, while also embracing the opportunity to create new memories and start fresh traditions with the residents and visitors who gather to celebrate Independence Day.

On July 4th, 2024, the city of Kirkland will host its annual parade from 10:30 AM to 02:00 PM at Marina Park.
