Submitted by the Event Organizer
2020 update – fireworks and in person events are canceled. For the first time ever, Concord’s 4th of July Parade is going virtual! The best part is, YOU can be a part of the experience by building and submitting a video of your very own 4th of July float!
Virtual floats can be submitted by both local organizations and individual families/households. Entry is FREE! All you have to do is build your float – it can be a car or truck float or even a wagon – then create a video of it “parading” down your street. The video submissions will be compiled into one seamless virtual parade and aired on Concord TV
Come out and enjoy Concord’s Home Town Parade, Picnic and Fireworks, taking place at Mt. Diablo High School (only three blocks from Todos Santos Plaza), on July 4, 2019.
The festivities start at 6:30 am with day of registration and goody bag pick up, music and sponsors’ booths. The Free Kids Fun Run will be held at 8 am followed by the 5K at 8:15 am. Our own home baseball team mascot, Stomper the Elephant from the Oakland A’s will be on hand to visit with the kids, pose for photos and start off both races, greeting the kids as they cross the finish line for the Kid’s Fun Run. Uncle Sam from the Singing Flag will also be joining us.
We will have 2 water stops/aid stations on the course at miles 1 & 2 and a ton of delicious and refreshing post-race goodies at the finish. After the race, grab a spot to watch Concord’s entertaining 4th of July Parade starting at 10 am, complete with floats, bands, equestrian & dance teams and more.
At 4 pm, the gates will open for the sixth annual 4th of July Festival with a kids carnival, food booths, vendor exhibits, and live entertainment on stage. The day will conclude with a 9 pm fireworks display that will not disappoint. Parade is free but if you’re going to join the Fun Run, an entry fee ranging from $34 to $44 is required. Please see the website for more details.
