4th of July Parade 2014

Santa Barbara, California, June 27, 2014 - The all-volunteer Spirit of '76 Foundation will once again present its 4th of July Parade and celebration in Santa Barbara. 2014 is the 52nd annual staging of the popular patriotic event.

The grand march begins at 1:00 p.m. on Friday July 4th at Micheltorena Street and proceeds down State Street to Old Town Santa Barbara, concluding at Coda Street.

After the parade, many of the parade participants will display historic vehicles, floats, and live music. The post-parade celebration takes place on the two blocks immediately south of Cota on State Street.

The theme of this year's parade is Made in the USA - The Bill of Rights. The theme gives participants in the parade some structure to help them prepare their presentation. It was chosen based on input from volunteers, supporters, friends, and past participants.

"America's Bill of Rights amends the Unites States Constitution to guarantee a number of personal freedoms," says Paul Lamberton, president of Santa Barbara's Spirit of '76 Foundation. "We are proud to honor it as our theme for this year, and we look forward to celebrating with our community on July 4th."

The parade and celebration are free. All are invited to attend. For more information about the parade and The Spirit of '76 Foundation, please visit www.spiritof76sb.org.
