Come enjoy Oceanside's annual Independence Parade as it makes its way north on Coast Highway from Wisconsin Avenue to Civic Center Drive (just past City Hall). This year three "Hometown Heroes" will be honored, including former Oceanside Mayor Jim Wood. Come see floats, bands, walking groups, cool cars and much more as we pay tribute to our nation, Hometown Heroes, our city and our local businesses. Viewing the parade is available from the sidewalks along the entire route. Spectators are encouraged to bring folding chairs. Running time is about two hours.
