Join us on Thursday, July 4th, 9am

at Powerhouse Park for this community celebration!

 

Bring your dogs to join in on the fun!


Del Mar shows its true small-town character on the 4th of July, when kids on creatively-decorated bikes and scooters join parents, grandparents, neighbors, Junior Lifeguards, “dressed-up” dogs, Council members and Uncle Sam to parade through town, with the fire truck leading the way.

DMCC’s “Singing Together” group will present a short program of July 4th-themed songs – feel free to sing along! After the parade, enjoy a holiday cookie, plus lemonade donated by Jake’s.


Note that Coast Blvd. will close to cars from 15th Street, north at approximately 8:30am, and will reopen after the parade.
