The Town of Danville invites the community to the annual Kiwanis-Danville 4th of July Parade, hosted by the Kiwanis Club of the San Ramon Valley, in partnership with the Town. The parade will be held on Tuesday, July 4, along Hartz Avenue and San Ramon Valley Boulevard, from 9 a.m. to noon.
More than 100 groups are expected to participate in the parade, with a theme of “Celebrating Our Educators.” In honor of the theme, the Grand Marshal will be Contra Costa County Teacher of the Year Chavonta Edington. Along with local organizations, the parade will also include more than a dozen bands.
In preparation for the parade, the Town would like to offer some helpful tips for visitors:
- Review the parade map: The Kiwanis Club has an interactive route map with parking, bathrooms, and other key points available on their website at www.srvkiwanis.org/parade. Street closures near the parade route are also noted on the map.
- Choose your spot: Sidewalk space is available for bring-your-own seating on a first come, first served basis after 6 p.m. on Monday, July 3. Unattended chairs or other items placed before 6 p.m. are subject to removal, and reserving spots with chalk or tape is not permitted.
- Plan for parking: More than 30,000 people are expected at this year’s parade, and while many municipal lots are available, parking further and walking to the parade site may be the best alternative. A full list of lots is available on the Kiwanis parade website, including lots with accessible options and amenities.
The parade will take place along Hartz Avenue and San Ramon Valley Boulevard, starting at San Ramon Valley High School at Railroad Avenue and ending at Town and Country Drive. Street closures will begin at 6 a.m. July 4. For more information, visit the Kiwanis Club of San Ramon Valley website at www.srvkiwanis.org/parade.
