Patriotic Parade 2009Turlock Downtown Property Owners Association and American Legion Rex Ish Post 88 are proud to present the Turlock 4th of July Celebration in Downtown Turlock on July 3, 2010.
There will be no public fireworks show this year in Turlock, neither at CSU Stanislaus or the Stanislaus County Fairgrounds.
The nearly 4,000 people who attended Turlock Downtown’s Taste of Turlock 2010 on May 1st (up from the approximate 600 last year) prove that Turlockers want a free community event where family and friends can meet for food and fun.
Turlock Downtown and the American Legion Rex Ish Post 88 are looking for as many participants as possible to help make this year’s 4th Annual Independence Celebration a fun community event where everyone is there!
Thousands of people came out to celebrate our country's Independence Day on Turlock Downtown's Main Street in 2009.The event will include an open Independence Celebration Car Show, great music and an old fashion street faire atmosphere that is sure to fill the streets with thousands of people as it has the last three years.
On Saturday, July 3, 2010, an opening ceremony will take place at 9:30am, the Patriotic Parade will begin at 10am, and the Independence Celebration Car Show will be ongoing from 10am to 5pm.
The Patriotic Parade will run through Historic Downtown on Saturday morning and is expected to draw thousands to the Main Street corridor.
