Share this:

Grab your cowboy boots and hat, wear your island shirts and shorts, bring your beach chairs, and prepare for a fun day western Island style at the 28th Annual Balboa Island Parade on Sunday, June 4.

The theme this year is “Horsin’ Around Island Style.”

The parade starts promptly at 11 a.m. at the corner of Bayside and Marine Avenue. The parade crosses over the Balboa Island Bridge, travels down Marine Avenue and ends at the fire station (approximately two and one-half blocks).

A festive after-party starts immediately following the parade in front of the Fire Station featuring local band “The Fabulous Nomads.”

Awards in a variety of categories will be presented at the All Island “Pancake Breakfast” at the Beek Center on Saturday, June 24.
