Let the good times roll! Half Moon Bay’s 53rd annual Ol’ Fashioned 4th of July Parade Committee announced this year’s traditional parade celebration will feature a full day of activities including the Lions Club Pancake Breakfast, a festive Block Party presented by the Coastside Chamber, and 4th of July Festival presented by the IDES Society with food and drink, artisan booths, kids activities and live music.

This year marking it’s 53rd rendition, Half Moon Bay’s classic, beloved Ol’ Fashioned 4th of July Parade along with a Pancake Breakfast, Block Party & Festival takes over Main Street, transforming the charming downtown into a festive Red, White and Blue celebration. The parade starts at 12 noon and last around 90 minutes.

A time-honored, home-spun tradition, the parade celebrates Independence Day in small town America with an entertaining array of whimsical floats, marching bands, horses, community service groups, classically cool cars, decorated trikes and bikes, parading pooches, youth sports teams, dance and theatre troupes, photos and fun with the delightfully rotund, playful and mischievious Pumpkin Festival mascot “Gourdy”, a Color Guard by the American Legion, and local dignitaries and celebrities slowly winding their way through the crowded downtown along Main Street between Filbert and Mill Streets.

Honoring Half Moon Bay’s western heritage and always a parade highlight, there will be a large number of equine entries with prizes awarded in several categories. Half Moon Bay’s famous, 40-member strong “Sitting Marching Band” will be in their usual perch at Main and Kelly playing an array of patriotic ballads during the parade.

The Half Moon Bay Lions Club will be hosting its annual 4th of July Pancake Breakfast in the rear City Hall parking lot (501 Main Street) from 8am to 11:30am. Adding to the festivities are the Coastside Chamber 4th of July Block Party in Mac Dutra Plaza with beer and wine, live music, a kids zone and a Patriotic Outfit Contest (ends at 3pm), plus IDES 4th of July Festival with live music, food and drink booths, arts and crafts vendors and kids activities (ends at 4pm).
