4th of July Parade & Art in the Park

With extreme regret, this year’s Old Fashioned 4th of July Parade and Art in the Park have been cancelled.

Impact from the Covid- 19 Pandemic has made this decision necessary. additionally, the firework shows held in Long Beach and Ilwaco have also been cancelled. As soon as we hear County’s plans for individual fireworks, we will post the information. Stay healthy everyone…

Every year Ocean Park hosts a 4th of July Parade that brings families from Washington and the neighboring states to participate in the parade. Kid’s bicycles are decorated for free, there are fire trucks galore, an official flyover by the Coast Guard, family decorated floats and a good time is had by all. A very special family town parade!

The parade starts at 1 pm and proceeds from U Street, to Bay Avenue, to Vernon, ending at 256rh Lane, traveling right through the heart of our village. 

Following the parade join us for Art in the Park
