We've combined two of our favorite 4thof July events, the Family Parade and the Dog Show, into one new exciting event! Decorate your wagons, bikes, and of course yourself with your best stars, stripes, and red, white, and blue for the annual 4th of July Parade.  For the second year, we have included our four-legged family members to be in the parade as well! 

Family and Dog Parade registration is from 9:30am until 11am at the Recreation Center, Main Parking Lot entrance. The parade starts at 11:05am from The VIBE Teen Center and heads down Shell Blvd before making a turn into Leo Ryan Park.  The parade ends at the Amphitheater where the opening ceremonies begin at 11:15am.  Registration is free for families and dogs.

Family Parade prizes will be given for Most Patriotic, Most Unique, Best Group, and Best Overall, so come dressed to impress. 

Dog Parade participants can choose to enter their dog into one contest category: Most Patriotic, Most Handsome (male dogs),or Most Beautiful (female dogs).Each category will be limited to the first 35 entries. Additionally, participants can enter into the Fastest Eater contest, which will be limited to the first 12 dogs to sign up.

We encourage anyone not participating in the parade to line Shell Boulevard to view the parade, and then join us in the amphitheater at 11:15am for the opening ceremonies.
