Moreno Valley Invites You To Participate in a Two-Day Independence Day Celebration

The City of Moreno Valley’s July 4th Celebration this year will be a Two-Day Celebration.  Beginning on July 3, the Independence Day Celebration will kick off with a parade from 9:30 a.m. – noon. The parade theme this year is "America Come Together".  The second day of celebration will continue on July 4 from 2:00 p.m. - 10:00 p.m. with the Family Fun Fest activities at Mountain View Middle School/Morrison Park. Highlights of the festival include a Moreno Valley Idol competition, drawing vocal talent to compete during the July 4 festivities.  The concert headliner this year is “The Beach Toys” who promises to bring back great memories with “A Tribute to the Beach Boys” and “Paperback Writer” who promises to bring back great memories with “A Tribute to the Beatles”. The festival concludes with a spectacular fireworks display at 9 p.m., which is simulcast on radio station KOLA 99.9 FM.   This promises to be the best July 4th show ever!

Organizations are invited to enter a float or to otherwise sponsor a parade entry.  The last day of registration is Thursday, June 17.  No parade entries will be taken after that date.  For more information on how to enter a float, contact the Moreno Valley Parks and Community Services office at 413.3280.
