If you want to catch a glimpse of New Hampshire's U.S. Senate candidates on Independence Day, head to Amherst and Merrimack.

Both parades will feature all four major candidates running this year, including incumbent Democrat Jeanne Shaheen.

She'll be joined by the three Republican challengers: former Massachusetts U.S. Senator Scott Brown, former New Hampshire U.S. Senator Bob Smith, and former state Senator Jim Rubens.

The Amherst parade kicks off at 10 at Wilkins Elementary School.

The Merrimack parade starts later in the day at 1, starting at the Merrimack Commons parking lot/tractor supply store.

The two parades have become a must-stop for those running for office in New Hampshire.

Rubens will also be marching in the Laconia parade at 4.
