Alpine's 4th of July Parade

A 4th of July Parade for Alpine is in the works! It will start at the Alpine Women's Club and end at the Alpine Community Center where there will be a Deep Pit BBQ, live country western music, and a carnival for the children. Staging will be at 8:30 a.m. at the Women's Club and the parade will kick off with the flyover of refurbished WW II byplanes at 10:00 a.m.

World War II veterans Fred Higginbotham and Bill Ridenour will be our Grand Marshalls!

Want To Be On Our Float? We plan to have a float carrying veterans like the one above and we want lots of veterans to be part of it. Those with difficulty walking will be on the float, others walking beside it. Please send us an email to let us know you are interested.

We really need businesses to step up and sponsor to cover the costs of this event. Please check out the sponsorship opportunities.

A patriotic mini-concert by the San Diego Festival Chorus was next.
