4th of July Parade and Potluck

The annual July 4th parade and potluck is a longstanding neighborhood tradition. It has been done every year since the inaugural event in 1984. The parade starts at 7:30am on the corner of Arroyo Chico and Malvern, heads east along Arroyo Chico, north on Eastbourne, west on Exeter, and then south on Stratford back to Arroyo Chico and Malvern.

Marchers consist of neighbors of all ages, sporting patriotic colors, enjoying the casual walk together through the streets as patriotic music is played. Bikes, strollers, and dogs are also decked out in red, while, and blue, and vie for unique awards. Neighbors who don't walk the parade route can be found cheering from their front yards. A post-parade neighborhood potluck picnic rounds out the morning. This is a fun holiday tradition for adults and children alike.
