Come dressed in red, white, & blue and decorate your bike or wagon to participate in this fun-filled people parade. Please note, this parade is pedestrian-only and motor vehicles are not permitted.
After the parade, stick around for a 4th of July celebration in Burgess Park (Alma & Burgess Ave.) from noon-2:30 pm. Activities will include live music, inflatable jump houses, giant slides, games, crafts, face painting, rock walls, and laser tag. Food and drinks can be purchased from one of the many community vendors and food trucks.
Admission is free, but a $7 wristband is required for some activities which can be purchased at the parade or at the event. Wristbands can be purchased in advance by going to the Arrillaga Family Gymnasium (600 Alma Street), Monday-Friday from 8 am-5 pm starting June 1st. Participants are encouraged to purchase wristbands early; the lines at the event will get long.
