June 29, 2018 (Deerhorn Valley) – “If it moves, it can parade!” say organizers of the 6th annual Deerhorn Valley Independence Day Parade. That includes wagons, carts, tractors, bikes, strollers, joggers, horses, dogs, emus and other animals in a parade that reflects small town Americana at its best.
Staging for the parade in Deerhorn Valley, a small town south of Jamul, begins at 9:30 a.m. at McNeil’s Field at the junction of Elena Way and Mt. Elena (accessed off Deerhorn Valley Road: see map) with the parade rolling out at 10 a.m. A picnic follows, with hotdogs, chips, ice cream, water and free popcorn. There will also be face painting and vintage autos on display.
The parade is organized by the Deerhorn Valley Community Association.
