After the parade, families gather at Mariners Park for a day of patriotic celebration

With parade participants decked out in red, white and blue…from babies in strollers to kids on bicycles, in wagons and more, the celebration is a family-fun favorite! The parade begins at the corner of Commodore Road and Mariners Drive at 10:30 a.m. with the Newport Beach Fire Department leading the procession.

Afterward, families and friends gather at Mariners Park from 11 a.m.-1:30 p.m. to enjoy bounce houses, inflatable slides, games and activities, rock music, vendor booths and more. At the festival, there will be food for sale and wristbands available for purchase that will allow participation in games and activities.

The event is presented by the Mariners Elementary School Foundation and the City of Newport Beach Senior Services & Recreation Department.
