Ventura’s 4th Offers Push’em Pull’em Parade for Kids & Their Families

July 4, 2010

Tomorrow morning, bright and early, we’ll walk up our street to Main in midtown and join the throngs of families for this year’s Push’em Pull’em Parade. Park at the San Jon Road City Maintenance yard and join us!

Our son has been in this human scale, human propelled parade since he was eight months old so this will be his 7th trip down Main.

When I asked him if he wanted to be in it this year, he said “Of course!”

Sponsored by the Ventura East Rotary Club, participants meet at 10am near Cemetary Park. We start rolling down the hill about 10:30am. The theme of this year’s Street Fair and Push’em Pull’em Parade is “Old Fashioned 4th of July” and we have two Uncle Sam hats to wear and a huge red white and blue pinwheel to carry. We’ll figure out the rest soon–and whether the small boy will ride his scooter or his bikergo!

And of course we’ll have some flyers to tell people about our ArtRides!

For folks who live out on the east end of town, there’s a free shuttle service from the Ventura County Government Center that runs from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. The last shuttle leaves the Street Fair at 5 p.m.
