Castroville’s Old-Fashioned 4th Parade

Castroville’s 4th of July celebration has grown into one of our most coveted events with the Chamber of Commerce heading up the hometown parade through the streets of historic Castroville.

Whether you’re riding on a decorated trailer, a vintage tractor, car or even a big red fire truck, it’s an old-fashioned, small-town parade! Join us for free hot dogs, watermelon & the trophy presentation for the best in each category! It’s a great way to advertise a new business or service!
