The Town of Lyme would like to advise area residents that the traditional Cove Road July 4th Parade will be held Monday, July 4, at approximately 10:00 a.m., in celebration of Independence Day.  The parade will begin near Camp Claire on Cove Road, cross Route 156 and end at the Lyme Grange. 

The grand marshal for this year’s parade will be Parker Lord, who served as a selectman on Town of Lyme’s Board of Selectmen for more than 20 years and retired in 2021.  Lord currently continues to serve the Town as chair of its Open Space Commission.

The Town advises its residents that temporary street closings will be in effect during the parade, travel delays are possible and parking may be limited in some areas. 

Route 156 will be closed from approximately 10:00 a.m. to 10:15 a.m. between Sterling City Road North and South with a detour along Sterling City Road. 

As a reminder, Lyme Town Hall, the Lyme Public Library, the Transfer Station and Hamburg Recycling Center will all be closed Monday, July 4, in observance of Independence Day.
