Half Moon Bay celebrates Independence Day 2016 and its classic small town spirit with the popularOl’ Fashioned 4th of July Parade down historic Main Street on Monday, July 4, 2016.

Starting at noon, the delightful, home-spun parade features a charming array of creative floats, marching bands, equine groups, classic cars, decorated trikes and bikes, non-profits, youth sports teams, dance and theater troupes, and local dignitaries who will slowly wind its way through the crowded downtown.

This year marking it’s 46th rendition, Half Moon Bay’s beloved Ol’ Fashioned 4th of July Parade takes over Main Street transforming the charming downtown into a pulsating Coastsider take on a mini-Mardi Gras style celebration.
