At 10: A.M. – The pre-parade activities begin with a fly-over of 4 Stearman Bi Planes used in WW2 to train pilots. Patriotic music will be played at three different stages along the route. Followed by a shoot-out by the Doves and Desperados and many fun activities.
At Noon – Enjoy watching a second fly-over of one T-6 military training plane and one T-34 military training plane. The National Anthem will be played by Chance Perez on the electric guitar. The parade begins as soon as the National Anthem is completed.
While you wait for the parade to begin you may want to purchase a Julian July 4th
commemorative T-shirt being sold at locations along Main Street
Spend the day enjoying the parade and the events that surround it:
- The historic quilt show put on by the Julian Women’s Club as well as a raffle for a one of a kind quilt designed by the queen of quilt making, Eleanor Burns.
- A Mouth Watering, Deep Pit barbecue and dance for $12.00 ($8.00 for children under 12 and Free for children under 6) put on by the American Legion, from 1-5. Live music until 8pm.
- The merchants will be open after the parade in order for some great shopping, eating and buggy rides.
Our parade is quite popular so it is suggested that you arrive early to catch the pre-parade activities starting at 10 A.M. Some parade “goers“ set out chairs the night before to enable them to get a good place.
Main Street closes to traffic at 9 A.M. Follow directions to the nearest parking lot. FREE Public toilets are available at the bank parking lot and behind the town hall.
