4th of July celebration at Huntington Beach
June 26, 2012 by Sarah
Independence Day is going to be greatly celebrated throughout Orange County, and Huntington Beach, which is located about 16 miles southwest of Tustin, will once again be doing it in grand style. This year’s events will be centered on the 108th Annual Huntington Beach 4th of July Parade.
It is expected that approximately 200,000 people will attend and participate in the festivities. As far as the parade goes, an estimated 35,000 people will line the parade route on Main Street. When it comes to parades, all of the floats, vehicles, bands, and groups involved are usually identified by their signs, their costumes, and the manner in which they are decorated. To maximize their visibility and to express their patriotism, parade participants can invest in poster printing and banner printing so that they are in keeping with the spirit of the holiday.
The full day of events kicks off with a pancake breakfast prepared by the Kiwanas. This repast will take place at Lake Park at 6:30 am. Immediately thereafter will be the Surf City 5k Run, which will take place on a USA approved track and field certified course along Main Street and Pacific Coast Highway. Also taking place at 7:00 am will be the Fitness Expo, which will be at Worthy Park.
The parade will last from 10:00 am until noon, with Patrick Warburton acting as this year’s Parade Grand Marshall. All day long, KRS 101 will be broadcasting the day’s event live from the pier and the event will conclude with a spectacular fireworks display.
