Since 1874, the city of Modesto has celebrated the 4th of July with a parade through downtown. This year is no exception. A downtown parade at 9:30 a.m., kicks off this year’s Fourth of July celebration, on Tuesday, July 4th!
The 2018 parade theme is:
“The Land Of Liberty”
After the parade, be sure to stop by the All American Festival, from 11am - 3pm, at Modesto Centre Plaza, in front of Brenden Theatres. Click here for flyer.
