This weekend marks the annual celebrations for Independence Day in Vallejo and our neighboring city, Benicia. Benicia will kick things off with the Torchlight Parade at 6:30pm on Friday, June 3rd and the Freedom Festival all day Saturday. The morning of July 4th, Vallejo will hold its 162nd annual parade followed by the Festival on the Waterfront, and the fireworks show will start at 9:15pm on the waterfront.
With events going on all day in both cities on July 4th, you can check out both festivals and keep your family entertained from the Stars and Stripes Forever Parade in the morning to the fireworks in the evening.
The Freedom Festival in Benicia will include music, arts/crafts, a climbing wall, train rides, and a bouncy house. Vallejo’s Red White and Blue Groove has a bit more for adults, like the artisan beer garden, a car show, and jazz performances, along with plenty of fun for kids.
At Avery Greene Honda, we’re excited to celebrate with our fellow citizens! We hope you’ll make it to these festivities.
