Friends of Oceanside Parks Donates 3,000 Flags for Independence Parade

Oceanside CA— Friends of Oceanside Parks, a non-profit group founded in 2011, has again donated nearly 3000 American flags to Oceanside’s Independence Parade, scheduled for Saturday, June 27th.

The annual downtown Oceanside Independence Parade, presented by the Tri-City Medical Center, will take place on Coast Highway from Wisconsin Avenue to Civic Center Drive.   The event kicks off at 10:00 a.m. and ends at noon with more than 120 parade entries expected to march, roll, walk and drive down the famous 101 Coast Highway.

Chris Gow, Parade Volunteer and Board Member for the Friends of Oceanside Parks said, “We love providing all the flags and seeing them given out to parade watchers. That’s why we decided to keep it a contribution priority again this year and now it’s one of our largest monetary contributions to the community. We challenge other organizations and businesses to find a way, as we do, to support this special Americana parade. ”

The “Made-In-USA” premium cloth 4×6 and 8×12 flags will be handed out by MainStreet Oceanside parade volunteers and Oceanside ROTC high school members to parade watchers and those participating in the patriotic event.
