Huntington Beach Independence Day Parade Celebration July 4 hb4thofjuly.org
Huntington Beach, California--Horse drawn carts & carriages are a staple at the Huntington Beach 4th of July Parade held on Main Street in Huntington Beach, California. There are usually several horse drawn carts entered into the parade.
They provide affordable participation that often costs less than building a float for the event. Floats generally cost in the thousands of dollars, while sponsorship of horse drawn cart can be less.
Children love to see the beautiful horse clippety-clop by on Main Street. While parents don't always keep an eye on their kids and you'll see children step dangerously into the street and parade route, no child has been injured to date.
The event is a family-friendly parade, filled with picnics, parties and merriment throughout the entire day. Downtown Huntington Beach closes Main Street with activities for children such as bounce houses and coloring booths.
The beach just across the street is the main draw after the parade. If you love to see horses and ponies, Huntington Beach 4th of July Parade is nearly a sure bet. It begins at 10 a.m.
