Parade Ready: Fourth of July Activities and Toys for Kids

Jenny Moore |

Radio Flyer has you covered with the perfect parade ride and festive celebrations for your family this Fourth of July.



5 Ways to Use Your Wagon


1. Create a Patriotic Parade Wagon 

It’s no secret that a Radio Flyer wagon is the perfect set of wheels to bring to a parade. Deck out your ride for a community parade or make your own celebration with a stroll around the block.

2. Festive Front Porch Decor 

Show off your festive spirit to the rest of the neighborhood by incorporating your wagon into your porch décor. It also makes for a perfect photo background! 


3. Take a Picnic Basket

For an on-the-go celebration, a wagon makes the perfect picnic basket. Whether your family is hanging on the beach or heading to the park for a socially distant firework display, bring a dinner spread with you! Something as simple as a picnic can make the holiday feel extra special for little ones.


4. Make a Colorful Serving Tray

A little toy red wagon is the best way to add a pop of color to your table. Perfect for holding anything from sweet treats to silverware & napkins, family members and friends alike will love this little red touch at any 4th celebration.


5. Cool Down with a Wheeled Ice Box

Hosting some guests this 4th of July weekend? Bring on the childhood nostalgia by converting your classic red wagon into a mobile cooler. All you need is some ice and your favorite drinks to get the outdoor party started.


5 Parade-Ready Rides

  1. Best Classic Wood Wagon for Parades: All-Terrain Cargo Wagon

The classic look and versatile design make this the ideal vehicle for little ones and all your essentials (while also providing an ideal base for 4th of July decorations). Streamers, flags, signs, and more – deck out this classic wood wagon for a truly patriotic ride! Shop the All-Terrain Cargo Wagon.


  1. Best Custom Wagon: Build-A-Wagon®

Create the perfect set of wheels for your family this 4th of July with Build-A-Wagon®! Choose a wagon base, add your favorite combination of accessories, and personalize for a special touch. Customize your very own wagon now.


  1. Best Wagon for Picnics & Barbecues: 3-in-1 Tailgater Wagon® with Canopy

Picnics & barbecuing are synonymous with July 4th. Tow kids & cargo to your celebration with the 3-in-1 Tailgater Wagon. Bring all your cold drinks & foods along using the caddy to securely haul your family’s cooler. Plus, the safety straps and zippers transform the tailgate wagon into bench mode for instant extra seating that little ones can enjoy at the backyard bbq or picnic party wherever you may be. Shop the Tailgater Wagon®.


  1. Best Custom Trike: Custom 4-In-1 Build-A-Trike®

Tricycles are the ultimate vehicle for parades. Little ones can start the route pedaling away, but once they tire, parents can take over with the push handle. Plus, store parade handouts or belongings in the rear storage basket so you can focus on the fun.



How are you celebrating July 4th this year? Whether you’re soaking up the sun with a beach day, enjoying a barbeque at home, or heading to a parade with all your red, white, and blue, we hope you have a fun holiday with your loved ones!
