Enjoy a safe parade! In a hometown parade, many spectators are likely to know the people participating in the parade. In all the excitement of the day, some spectators may feel the desire to run into the street to pick up candy or to greet a friend/neighbor who is in the parade. Please help keep our parade safe by remaining in the spectator areas and not walking or running into the route during the parade.  We appreciate your cooperation and look forward to enjoying a safe 4th of July in La Verne!
