Main Street Santa Monica hosts its annual Fourth of July Parade. Neighbors, kids, bicycles, creative teams, marching bands, and civic-minded groups are all invited to march, and everyone is invited as spectators. 2019's theme is the Year of the Woman.
The theme celebrates Lady Liberty and all the women in the community who make a difference.
Pre-Registration is required to participate; the form is available on the parade website. The parade begins at Pico and Main Street and continues south on Main to Marine, wrapping around to the beach down Barnard Way.
Main Street is closed to traffic from 9am until noon.
