First unit steps off at 10:00 a.m.

Coast Highway from Wisconsin to Civic Center Drive



Join us on Saturday, June 27, 2020 for the 26th annual Independence Parade as it makes it way north on Coast Highway from Wisconsin Avenue to Civic Center Drive (just past City Hall). Come see floats, bands, walking groups, cool cars and much more. Our theme this year is "HOMETOWN HEROES".




The parade starts in front of the 101 Cafe (Coast Highway at Wisconsin Avenue) at 10:00 a.m. and works its way north with the first unit of the parade reaching City Hall around 10:15 a.m. Running time from beginning to end is about two hours. 

Viewing of the parade is available from the sidewalks along the entire route. Spectators are encouraged to bring folding chairs. The highest concentration of viewers will be on the north end of the route past Seagaze Avenue.



PARKING: Street parking is available on the residential side streets that run parallel to the entire route (Freeman and Tremont Streets). Some parking is available in the downtown parking lots and the parking structure (to enter the downtown area from the East on parade morning, you will have to cross Coast Highway at Oceanside Blvd. or Surfrider Way). Parking time limits may be enforced for street parking and parking lots - watch for the signs.
