The Bar Harbor 4th of July Parade was held on Monday, July 4th on a cloudless day, with temperatures in the lower 80s. Over 90 units stepped off and were met by thousands of people in the parade route! Prizes were awarded for three categories "Best Depiction of Theme", "Most Creative" and "Best Youth Entry." Here are the winners.

This year's theme was Acadia National Park's Centennial, and it's only fitting that the winner of Best Depiction of the Theme was Acadia National Park!
