The Town and Village of Orchard Park is adapting in a rather unique way... by expanding their traditional Fourth of July parade route to “bring the parade to you” according to our partners at WIVB-TV.

The town and village will travel throughout neighborhoods on July 4. Residents are asked to follow social distancing guidelines while celebrating.

There will be three parade routes, starting at different times of the day from different locations.

For those of you unfamiliar with Orchard Park, the Town and Village are very scenic, and is one of WNY best-kept secrets.

Here is a virtual tour...
