Balboa Island’s 26th Annual Parade on SUNDAY

This Sunday, June the 2nd at 11am, the 26th Annual Balboa Island Parade will take place!

This parade features a spirit like no other, and honors local business people, social groups, and of course the obligatory elected officials who want to have their floats in it, too!

The parade is about 2.5 miles long and marches on about a half-mile of road, making it the most feature-packed parade per-square-mile in America. The parade takes place on Marine Avenue and begins at the bridge, ending by the fire station.

It’s a very fun time for kids and families and if you haven’t been– you should definitely go! The bridge closes at 10:45am, but get here even earlier for good seats! (Bridge reopens at 12:30pm)

I have volunteered for the parade setup/breakdown many years but this time, me and this old back will be there merely to see this parade as a spectator.  See you there?
