The local American Legion, Newport Harbor Post 291, is the driving force behind this annual event. The parade at 1pm isn’t the only thing happening on the fourth–also on the schedule is a pancake breakfast and live music by the Dave Alcantar Band. More details about the celebration and about the American Legion Post 291 are available online at www.al291.org.
It’s a great way to spend the afternoon, celebrating the 4th of July in Newport Beach! To the left is a picture from the boat parade in 2009–just an example of how patriotic the boats get for the fourth!
