16 years of Celebrating Independence
The 2023 parade returns to its classic route. The parade kicks off promptly at 9:30am at Pico and Main Street, traveling South on Main Street before turning right onto Marine, ending at Barnard Way. You can watch the parade anywhere along the Main Street route as classic cars and community organizations make their way to Lot 5 South by the beach. The official parade grandstand will be located in front of the Ocean Park Library at the corner of Ocean Park and Main Street.
On the 4th of July much of Main Street and some adjacent streets leading to it will be closed to vehicle traffic from 6 a.m. – noon. Public parking is available at several parking lots off Neilson Way and beach lots to the west. Consider walking, biking or taking the metro to watch the parade.
