We take Fourth of July very serious at the beach, and this year’s calendar will not disappoint. Our team at I love OC Homes has rounded up the holiday’s events in our local neighborhoods. Chances are, you will run into us at one if not all of the below!

Huntington Beach

The annual parade will march down the streets of downtown Huntington Beach beginning at 10 a.m. on July 4th. The largest Independence Day parade west of the Mississippi River features bands, floats, equestrian groups, film and television celebrities, and community organizations. After the parade, entertainment on the pier will continue until 9 p.m., when the 4th of July fireworks show begins.

The Bolsa Chica Conservancy and Fred's Mexican Café are hosting the exciting, annual Fourth of July Brunch! Enjoy ocean views, an all you can eat champagne brunch, and unobstructed views of the Huntington Beach Fourth of July Parade! Fred's Mexican café will donate 100% of the proceeds to support the Conservancy's education and restoration programs.

If none of this is up to your festive standards. you can be one of 30 passengers on a beautifully restored vintage yacht to experience a dinner cruise to the 4th of July Fireworks by the Queen Mary. The voyage begins in Huntington Harbour with a cruise through a calm harbor with exquisite views of the harbor and sunset. They will serve a BBQ pulled pork and chicken slider buffet with side dishes and dessert while cruising to the Queen Mary. Enjoy spectacular views of the fireworks returning to Huntington Harbour around 11:00 p.m.

Bring your family and friends to the free event, hosted by the cities of Los Alamitos & Seal Beach on the flight line at Los Alamitos Army Airfield. The event will feature live music on the main stage beginning with the King Salmon Band and followed by the 40th Infantry Division Band.

The Family Fun Area will have face painting, balloon twisting, caricature artists, a magic show, and activities for the whole family to enjoy.
