Fourth of July Parade Is Coming Up Fast
Santa Monica’s 5th Annual Fourth of July Parade on Main Street, presented by the Ocean Park Association, will roll Monday.
This year parade’s theme is “Fourth of July at the Beach” and the Grand Marshals are the LA County Fire Department Lifeguards, led by Captain Angus Alexander, a 31 year veteran of our local ocean lifeguards.
The parade starts at 9:30 am on Monday, July 4th on Main Street at Pico Boulevard and proceeds down Main Street to the Venice border.. There will be a party immediately following the parade in Heritage Square, located at 2612 Main Street at Ocean Park Boulevard, with live music, food trucks, and a lawn for picnics, hosted by The Heritage Museum and the Ocean Park Association.
Musical performers include the Santa Monica High School Band; Critical Brass, a Dixieland band; Russ Mullen and the Jazz Associates; and The Fu Dogs. And along with the lifeguards, the Santa Monica Mounted Police, a procession of classic low rider cars, the Santa Monica Fire Department, Assemblymember Julia Brownley, and former Santa Monica Mayors will join other school and community groups as marchers in the parade.
