Parade and Fireworks on Catalina

the scoop:

No cars? No problem! This two days worth of celebrating culminates in a golf cart parade for the 4th of July on Catalina Island down Crescent Ave. The parade begins at 1 p.m., but get there early to stake out your best viewing spot. After the parade, stroll around town and listen to live music playing everywhere or hit the beach or take a hike. In the evening you might choose to enjoy a BBQ buffet dinner and music by the USC Marching Band in the Casino Ballroom, where you can go out to the balcony to see the fireworks display over Avalon Bay; or you may choose to just watch it from your hotel or a boat — it’s an island, so the best seat in the house is wherever you happen to be sitting.
