Oceanside Parade to Air Live on KOCT

Oceanside CA— The 21st Annual Oceanside Independence Parade this Saturday, June 27, 2015,  will be a  colorful, festive event with funky floats, beauty queens, military bands, show cars and fire trucks.  Thanks to Main Street Oceanside, a host of volunteers and Tri-City Medical Center this year’s 21st annual parade will continue with this patriotic tradition.
KOCT has been covering Oceanside parades for 30 years and our talented crew will be set up by the Oceanside Civic Center to capture this colorful tradition. Our hosts for the parade will be Oceanside’s Jim Schroder and Kristi Hawthorne.

The show will air ‘live’ on KOCT’s Community Channel 18 and can be seen in Oceanside on Cox Cable and county-wide on AT&T’s U-Verse (channel 99).   Also, if you have family or friends who don’t live in Oceanside they can still watch  your little baton-twirler perform in the  parade by going to KOCT.ORG and clicking on the “Watch Live-18” banner at the top of the home page.

The parade arrives at our Civic Center location about 10:14 am and the parade lasts about two hours. If you can’t attend the parade in-person or watch LIVE don’t worry: KOCT provides extensive replays on KOCT’s channel 18 and 19 and we also make the parade available as Video On Demand (Specials: Parade) via KOCT.ORG by the following Monday (June 29th).
