Get ready to celebrate an “Ultimate Summer” at the 23rd Annual Fourth of July Parade

Jul 3, 2023

Happy Fourth of July! The LAX Coastal Chamber of Commerce and its many community partners work hard every year to put on the Fourth Of July Parade.

The chamber is honored to present the 23rd annual event on Tuesday, July 4 with the theme, “Ultimate Summer!” We invited our participants to create floats and entries that celebrated what their dream summer plans would be with no limits! Of course, no SoCal summer would be complete without a trip to the beach, and we are proud to welcome the L.A. County Lifeguards as our 2023 Grand Marshals! Thank you to all our local lifeguards who keep our families, friends and neighbors safe, while they enjoy the surf and sand!

We look forward to seeing you all along Loyola Blvd., hearing your collective cheers and feeling the energy that you all bring on parade day.

Never been to the parade? Here is the scoop on this year’s event:

• The parade runs from 11 a.m. to approximately 12:30 p.m. and takes place along Loyola Blvd. in Westchester from Westchester Park to LMU.

• Seating is available along the parade route on a first-come, first-served basis. Bring your blankets and chairs, and plan to get there early if you have a particular area where you’d like to sit. The route is especially crowded near the announcer booths at Loyola at Manchester Ave.; Loyola at 83rd St. and Loyola at 80th St.

• Limited bleacher sitting is available at center stage (Loyola at 83rd St.)

• Parking for spectators is available at Loyola Marymount University, but cars must enter the university via Lincoln Blvd.

• An EMT will be stationed on Loyola at 83rd Street for any emergencies.

• For our parade pups, water bowls are available at announcer booths.

Visit our parade sponsor booths:

Our Admiral Sponsors are excited to celebrate with attendees and will have booths set up along the parade route with giveaways (while supplies last). At Westchester Park, Decron Properties will be passing out beverages and snacks. At center stage, the Stephanie Younger Group will be giving away red, white and blue swag like sunglasses. The Stephanie Younger Group is also the parade’s Official Water Sponsor and will be passing out drinks along the route!

Near LMU, Zacha Homes will be handing out patriotic balloons. Along Loyola, volunteers will also be handing out flags courtesy of Robin Zacha, the Parade’s Official Flag Sponsor!

Thank you to all our sponsors for supporting the LAX Coastal Fourth of July Parade!
