Santa Monica Fourth of July Parade Expected to Draw Thousands
By Lookout Staff
July 3, 2018 -- "Bringing Communities Together" is the theme of the 12th Annual Santa Monica 4th of July Parade Wednesday morning.
The parade -- which has become an annual tradition -- is expected to draw hundreds of participants and thousands of spectators as it winds itself along Main Street.
Produced by the Ocean Park Association (OPA), along with Ellas And Fellas and Elegant Events, the parade combines an old-time homespun feel and the city's funky beach town sensibility.
"We hope each and every one of you will take the opportunity to participate in this event and join us as we celebrate the holiday on Main Street," parade organizers said.
The parade kicks off at 9:30 a.m. at the intersection of Pico Boulevard and Main Street and proceeds south on Main to Marine Street, then heads west along Barnard Way to beach parking.
The parades typically features a wide variety of local participants, such as girl and boy scouts, local bands, service organizations like the Kiwanis, marching bands and politicians.
