Happy Birthday USA | July 1, 2010

Celebrate the 4th with US!
Alameda on Park Street
All activities occur on Sunday, July 4th, 2010. 
Alameda Race:                      Starts at 9:45AM
Parade:                                   Starts at 10AM
Jumpin’ & Jivin’ Jubilee:     Starts noon – 4:00pm

For those of you new to the parade this year, let us provide you with a sampling of what to expect: a seemingly endless procession of marching bands, floats, politicians, art cars, Cub Scouts on bikes, church groups, fez-wearing secret societies, gymnasts, dancers, martial-arts students, banjo pickers, hula dancers, and more. So much more that residents like to say half of the population participates in the parade while the other half lines the streets to watch.

Welcome to the Fremont 4th of July Parade
In the Historic Mission San Jose District!

A Memorable Event for the Entire Family!

The annual Fremont 4th of July Parade features floats and parade entries from throughout our community and the Bay Area, so you’ll likely see many familiar faces marching through the parade route. We’ve been very fortunate in past events to have dedicated teams of volunteers help in preparation of what has become one of Fremont’s signature events, and we hope to continue this tradition, with your help. We’re also planning a few surprises for 2010!

  1. Aloha! Given that I have spent a little bit of time inside the last hour scanning through your articles, I decided I might send a short note in your guestbook to say good day. I am really liking what you have got going on here with your web log and I do hope you continue writing it. That’s just about all from myself, hope you do have a terrific week and have fun with the summertime!
