4th of July Parade
Seaside’s annual 4th of July Parade starts at 10 am. The route is shortened this year with the start at the south end of Necanicum. From Necanicum it will turn east on 1st Avenue, then south on Holladay Drive to Broadway, west to Columbia, east to 1st Avenue back to Necanicum. The parade is always lots of fun for participants, rain or shine.
The parade line up will be on Necanicum Drive and all entrants must be in line and ready to go by 9:45 am. Since the 4th is a Monday this year, large crowds are expected resulting in traffic delays. Arriving early is strongly suggested. Those entrants not at their assigned position will be put at the end of the parade as space allows.
Entries must be able to negotiate turns onto and off Broadway. Floats cannot be over 40 feet in length, towing vehicle and float combined, and no more than 8 feet wide. A maximum of two vehicles per entry is allowed. If a float or vehicle distributes “goodies” it must be done by someone walking alongside the entry. No goodies or candy may be thrown from the float or vehicle. Emails with additional parade information and assigned position will be sent out to registered entrants July 1-2.
