Fireworks, Parades and Muscles to be Featured for Fourth of July!


"The fifth annual Main Street Parade presented by the Ocean Park Association will run the entire stretch of Main Street on Monday, July 4. This year’s theme is “Fourth of July on the Beach,” and will honor ocean lifeguards as grand marshals, led by Capt. Angus Alexander, a 31-year veteran of our local ocean lifeguards.

The parade will run from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m., starting at Pico Boulevard and looping south down to Marine Street where it will make a right turn to the beach and end at the 2600 beach parking lot. There will be an after party in Heritage Square following the parade at 2612 Main Street at Ocean Park Boulevard with live music and food trucks. Live music will feature the following groups and artists: Santa Monica High School Band; Critical Brass, a Dixieland band; Russ Mullen and the Jazz Associates; and The Fu Dogs."

The Ocean Lifeguards in the City of Santa Monica"


And last but certainly not least and not to be forgotten is Santa Monica Lifeguard Headquarters on the south side of the Santa Monica Pier... which manages, supervises and deploys the beach lifeguards to their stations, not to mention the 24 hour call car crew that deploys in their four wheel drive lifeguard rescue vehicle to emergencies on the sand, bike path and beach adjacent areas. 10-4!
