Independence Day Parade Participant Information
Greetings from Ocean Grove!
The Camp Meeting has begun planning for our Annual Independence Day Parade. This yearly event is symbolic of the rich tradition and customs that make Ocean Grove unique. This year's parade is especially significant because we are celebrating 150 years.
Join the Celebration!
Each year people gather to celebrate our independence as a nation and to enjoy our parade. This year's parade will be held on:
Saturday, July 6, 2019
Parade start time 10:30 AM
We are inviting parade participants to help us celebrate 150 years of community by incorporating visual elements or musical selections that invoke the traditions of Ocean Grove, the theme of community and or express what Ocean Grove means to you.
Planning an event of this magnitude requires a considerable amount of time, talent, volunteer and financial support. If you would like to be part of this great celebration by being a parade sponsor, or participant, volunteer, and / or to make a contribution; please download and complete the form below and return no later than May 31, 2019.
