>> Want to see our Top Picks for this week instead?
Aptos Village Park | Soquel St. and State Park, Aptos, CA
Billed as “The World’s Shortest Parade” at just two city blocks, this small town parade has enough pageantry to last two hours on July 4, 2017.
Last year, the 0.6 mile parade meant the city of Aptos (a town just east of Santa Cruz along the Pacific) celebrated the 4th of July in mini-grand ole style. We expect it to be the same this year.
