Sonoma is famous for many things, but my favorite part of living here is our 4th of July parade.

The parade will begin at 10am and is scheduled to included 100 floats, antique cars, groups, and nearly everything else you can imagine! The parade route is around the Historic Sonoma Plaza starting on First Street East. The final leg down First Street West is designated as the “wet zone.” You will see water balloons flying at the very end of the parade! There will be all sorts of events taking place in the Plaza after the parade. The fireworks will begin at dark.

Two years ago, I was in the parade with the band Ten Foot Tone. Here is video I shot of their performance. It gives you a good sense of the fun to be had on Monday.
