HUNTINGTON BEACH MODIFIES 4TH OF JULY CELEBRATION TO SAFELY CONTINUE LONG-STANDING TRADITIONS

*UPDATED 06/03* Given that the State is still restricting large special events, the City of Huntington Beach and the 4th of July Executive Board have been working together to create a modified 4th of July Celebration to ensure residents can safely take part in this long-standing tradition. The Celebration will include a revised parade route that will travel throughout Downtown Huntington Beach and various residential neighborhoods. The parade itself will be modified to avoid the use of large floats, bands, or other features that may promote crowding or close gatherings among participants or viewers. Rather, the modified parade will include smaller caravans of vehicles in comparison to the traditional parade. More details on these modifications will be released over the next several weeks. The Celebration will also include an expanded home decorating contest that will now be citywide and include businesses. These adjustments will maintain social distancing and allow the parade to continue onward, while still embracing the spirit of this beloved event that began in 1904.
