"Honoring Our Heroes” is this year's theme: free parade, music, food & arts sales, children’s activities
Ventura's 4th of July Street Fair continues its proud 39-year-old tradition on Friday, July 4, 2014 from 10 am to 5 pm in Ventura’s Downtown Cultural District.
The Independence Day event regularly draws 30,000 residents and visitors in a showcase of handmade arts and crafts by more than 300 artisans along nine blocks of Main Street from Fir Street to Mission Park, plus environmental displays, children’s activities, savory foods from booths sponsored by local organizations and businesses and many stages of live entertainment:
Admission to the event is free thanks to its presenter, the City of Ventura Department of Parks, Recreation and Community Partnerships and sponsors listed below. (Pier 101 pictured below to perform on the California Street Stage).
PARADE: Children and adults and their bicycles and little red wagons are invited to dress up for the Pushem-Pullem Parade sponsored by the Ventura East Rotary Club that assembles at Cemetery Park (Main & Crimea) at 9:30 am and begins to parade down Main Street at 10 am. Participants receive a free commemorative button while supplies last. Dress up as your favorite hero for this year’s theme “Honoring Our Heroes.”
TOURS, EXHIBITS & FUN FOR KIDS: Enjoy tours of City Hall, Sierra Club global awareness displays, exhibits of environmentally friendly cars and hands-on activities for children on Oak Street.
