Oceanside CA— The annual Oceanside Independence Parade is a great way to get the word out about your civic, fraternal, business, club or non-profit organization. Up to 10,000 spectators will cheer you as you march up Coast Highway on June 29, 2019. The parade will air live on KOCT-TV, the Oceanside Channel, on the day of the parade and air in reruns during the month of July.
The entry deadline this year is June 7. Entries received after the published deadline may be accepted on a space available basis. Due to the printing deadline, late entries will not be listed in the Official Parade Program. Applicants seeking to enter the parade after the deadline must call the MainStreet Oceanside office prior to submitting an application: 760-754-4512.
The annual Independence Parade makes it way north on Coast Highway from Wisconsin Avenue to Civic Center Drive (just past City Hall). Come see floats, bands, walking groups, cool cars and much more. The theme this year is “Hometown Heroes”.
Parking will be a challenge this year
Street parking is available on the residential side streets that run parallel to the entire route (Freeman and Tremont Streets). The south portion of the parade route will be less crowded than the north area around City Hall. NOTE: To enter the downtown area from the East, you will have to cross Coast Highway at Oceanside Blvd. or Surfrider Way). Parking time limits may be enforced for street parking and parking lots – watch for the signs.
