Morgan Hill July 4th Parade

Post by Kim Sievert » Mon May 30, 2016 11:56 am

July 4th Morgan Hill 4th July Parade.
Once again, the MVCC will make a showing in this parade. It has the small town parade flavor with a huge amount of spectators viewing it. This year’s theme for their parade is “The Great American Road Trip”. For MVCC folks, the wearing of “Hawaiian” shirts over OD or without OD shirts is encouraged. Staging for our group is usually in the parking lot, just off of Depot Street. WE NEED TO BE ONSITE BEFORE 9 AM. If you get their later than 9 AM, the road closure folks, may not let you get to our staging area. (They still may, so it pays to try) Weather is usually HOT, so plan accordingly. The parade route map from their website, does show the parking lot, we normally stage in , just off Depot Street. The website for parade is http://mhfreedomfest.com/site/parade/ POC is JoAnn Lesser, mamalesser@yahoo.com or on site look for Kim Sievert. We also head over to a “In and Out Burger” for fine food and cold beverages after the parade. ADDITIONALLY, you need to have a fire extinguisher for your vehicle, handy per parade staff.
