Local residents gathered July 4 to participate in the annual Independence Day parade at Powerhouse Park in Del Mar.  The Del Mar Foundation and the City of Del Mar invited families to dress up and decorate their bikes, scooters, wagons and baby strollers for the parade. A new category this year was the decorated golf cart.

The Mayor, City Council members and Uncle Sam led the parade, an annual tradition sponsored by the Del Mar Foundation.

Entrants marched from the park, down Coast Boulevard, and returned to the Powerhouse to enjoy fresh lemonade provided by Jake’s Del Mar. Fun and games began at Powerhouse Park immediately following the parade.  Children were able to tour a working Del Mar Fire Engine and get an official Del Mar fire hat.  For more information on the Del Mar Foundation, visit www.delmarfoundation.org.
