The parade kicks off promptly at 9:30am at corner of Pico & Main Streets and heads south. Join us anywhere along the route as we make our way to the beach down Barnard Way. 

Please note that the entire parade route and some streets leading to it will be closed to vehicle traffic ALL morning long. Public parking can be found at the Civic Center Lot and beach lots. 

The map below provides all of the information needed for the morning of cheering on the parade!
