Will 76 trombones lead the big parade with 110 cornets right behind? Only the parade organizers know that, so be sure to set up your parade-viewing spot along Main Street by 9am so you can find out too.
Once again, the Fourth of July Parade is sponsored by the Julian Woman’s Club and this year they celebrate their 100 years of service to the community by calling the parade ‘A Century of Commitment.’ Some of their many achievements include establishing the Pioneer Museum, organizing annual events like the Wildflower Show, the Quilt Trail, and the Holiday Gift Boutique, as well as providing scholarships for deserving high school graduates and adults to pursue their educational goals.
