This year my wife and I will be riding our bikes through the East Sac 4th of July parade again. It is such a great way to start off the holiday. We get to hang with hundreds of our neighbors and see everyone dressed up so festive in their red, whites and blues.
East Sac 4th of July Parade
The parade will start at 11:00 on 41st Street just south of J Street. It will do a big loop onto J Street, down 42nd Street, around Folsom Boulevard and then finish where it started on 41st Street. Then it will breakout into a large block party with live bands and people milling in the streets and visiting with their neighbors.
After we are done there we will bike back to our street where they will be holding their 20th Annual 4th of July block party. The street will be blocked off, there will be face painting and bike/wagon decorating and all sorts of neighborly fun with a grand fireworks display to finish it off.
I’ve never loved the 4th of July more than I do now. I’m sure that it has a lot to do with the great sense of community that I feel here in East Sac!
