The Town of Danville and the Kiwanis Club of San Ramon Valley are preparing for the return of the Kiwanis July 4th Parade in downtown Danville. The parade is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, July 4, at the north end of Hartz Avenue near San Ramon Valley High School. The parade route will continue along Hartz Avenue/San Ramon Valley Boulevard, and conclude at Town and Country Drive.
More than 100 groups are expected to participate in the parade, which takes approximately 2-3 hours to wind its way through the entire route. A complete route map, including parking, street closures, and restrooms, is available at www.srvkiwanis.org/parade;
The following streets closures are scheduled from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. on July 4:
- Danville Boulevard between El Cerro Boulevard and Railroad Avenue
- Railroad Avenue between Hartz Avenue and Love Lane
- La Gonda Way between El Cerro Boulevard and Danville Boulevard
- Prospect Avenue between Hartz Avenue and Front Street
- East Linda Mesa Avenue between Hartz Avenue and the Rose Street Parking Lot
- Hartz Avenue between Railroad Avenue and Hartz Way
- San Ramon Valley Boulevard between Hartz Way and Town and Country Drive
- Town and Country Drive between San Ramon Valley Boulevard and the Town and Country Parking Lot entrance
During the street closure, through traffic may utilize Danville Boulevard from north of El Cerro Boulevard and San Ramon Valley Boulevard south of Sycamore Valley Road West. The parking lots for Danville Town and Country, Danville Livery, and Sycamore Square will remain open for visitors to those centers.
Parking for the parade is available on surrounding public streets and in all downtown Municipal Parking lots. Given the expected crowd size, parking in or near the downtown Danville area will be very limited and alternative travel arrangements such as walking or biking are strongly recommended. Parade-goers may consider parking at the Sycamore Park & Ride parking lot and use Iron Horse Trail to walk to the downtown Danville area.
Accessible parking near the parade route is available at the Crossroads Shopping Center located at Hartz Way and San Ramon Valley Boulevard. Accessible seating along the parade route will be offered at the grandstand viewing area at Oak Court and San Ramon Valley Boulevard. A golf cart shuttle will be available to transport individuals to the viewing area from the Crossroads Shopping Center.
Sidewalk space is available for bring-you-own-seating on a first come, first served basis after 6 p.m. on Monday, July 3. Unattended seating or other items positioned prior to 6 p.m. are subject to removal. Chalk and tape may not be used to reserve seating and are subject to removal.
Due to noise, crowds, heat, the presence of young children, and nature of the event, it is not recommended to bring non-service animals to the parade.
