Celebrate July 4 at Del Mar Foundation’s decorated bike parade

Come join the fun at an Independence Day parade on Wednesday, July 4, at Powerhouse Park in Del Mar.

The Del Mar Foundation invites the families of Del Mar to decorate their bikes, scooters, wagons, baby strollers and leashed pets for a parade beginning at 9 a.m. The Mayor and City Council members will lead the parade, an annual tradition that is once again being sponsored by the Del Mar Foundation.

Start planning now to march in the parade. Bike entries have come with streamers, lots of flags and red, white and blue decorations. There are colorful wagons and baby strollers. Marchers come with leashed dogs dressed in patriotic colors.  So wear red, white and blue and enter the contest for best costume/decoration.

This year the marchers will step to live music provided by “Hullabaloo,” who will perform a short concert after the parade. If you don’t get the opportunity to prepare to march, come on down to the Powerhouse at 9 a.m. to watch the parade and enjoy the music. Following the parade, City of Del Mar Officials will pass out awards to some of the best participants in various age categories. When the judging is done children are invited to enjoy free snacks and fresh lemonade and to tour a real Del Mar Fire Engine and get a fire hat!

The event is free of charge. Adult supervision is required for all children.
