Independence Day parade to be held in Del Mar July 4

Bring your family to enjoy the annual Independence Day parade on Thursday, July 4, at Powerhouse Park in Del Mar.  The Del Mar Foundation and the City of Del Mar invite families to dress up and decorate their bikes, scooters, wagons and baby strollers for a parade beginning at 9:30 a.m.

The Mayor, City Council members and Uncle Sam will lead the parade, an annual tradition sponsored by the Del Mar Foundation that is being re-invented this year.  Come early, as parking will be limited because a portion of Coast Boulevard will be closed for the event.

In past years residents have decorated bikes, scooters, wagons and strollers with balloons, streamers, flags, and creative red, white and blue decorations of all types.  Marchers can also bring their leashed dogs dressed in patriotic colors.  A new category this year is the decorated golf cart.

Entrants will march from the park, down Coast Boulevard, and will return to the Powerhouse to enjoy fresh lemonade provided by Jake’s Del Mar. Fun and games will begin at Powerhouse Park immediately following the parade.  Children will be able to tour a working Del Mar Fire Engine and get an official Del Mar fire hat.

For more information, please contact the Del Mar Foundation office at or Robin Khoury at The event is free of charge.  Adult supervision is required for all children.

As Del Mar’s oldest 501(c)(3) non-profit, the Del Mar Foundation sponsors programs, makes grants, and manages over endowment funds to benefit the community and the San Dieguito Lagoon. The mission of the Del Mar Foundation is to promote civic pride and cohesiveness, acquire and preserve open space, improve beaches and parklands, raise and grant funds, and sponsor diverse cultural programs and community events in Del Mar.
