Thursday July 4th
Parade 10am – Noon @ Cape Story Neighborhood & Park
Fireworks – 9:20pm @ Cape Story Beach
(Rain Date for Fireworks is Friday July 5th)
PARADE THEME – “Fabulous 50”
The amazing Cape Story parade, like the City of Virginia Beach, is celebrating its 50th anniversary with a “Fabulous 50” theme. Bring your old photos to share, dress up in a past parade costume, create a generational float of all the family members that have participated over the years. Let’s make this a grand celebration.
This year’s parade and brunch will take place from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm (noon) on Thursday July 4th. The parade route will start on Beech at the bike path, proceed down Beech to Poinciana, follow Poinciana to Bayberry, turn left on Bayberry and end in the neighborhood park. All bike riders, floats and marchers need to line up for the parade between 9:30am – 9:45am. Please be careful spilling out onto Shore Drive. If you have to, line your float up in Food Lion’s parking lot and we will work you into the parade as it starts moving.
As in past years, trophies will be given for Most Original, Most Patriotic and Best Theme. The parade will be followed by a brunch in the park. There will also be biscuits, doughnuts, fruit and patriotic tunes.
As she has done in years past, an ice cream truck will also be provided courtesy of LYNN HUME, RE/MAX Allegiance.
This year’s fireworks show will be presented by the local Virginia Beach company, VA Pyro. The display will consist of 625 shells and will be launched around 9:20 pm on Thursday July 4th from the beach at First Landing State park. The rain date will be Friday July 5th at the same time. If it looks like rain, please check your emails and www.capestory.org for updates.
