We trade in our green and shamrocks for red, white and blue, stars and stripes on the 4th of July
To protect public health during the COVID-19 pandemic, the City of Dublin Independence Day parade, celebration and fireworks display has been canceled. City staff is planning new and creative ways to celebrate July 4th and our community’s American patriotic spirit. Learn more.
