Grandest MoHo Independence Day Parade Yet!

Big crowds experience expanded parade

By Bryan Harrison

The annual Mountain House Independence Day Parade is now a long-standing tradition. Recent growth of the town, combined with new and renewed community activity, made for the grandest parade experience the town has seen to date.

Numerous groups went so far as to build floats this year - something that has been somewhat of a rarity in past events. Groups like the MH Dog Club, Wine Club, Rotary participated for the first time, as well. There was a clear celebratory atmosphere all along Central Parkway from near DeAnza on the Questa side of town, to Heritage Street and back.

Community Services District event planner, Angel Lamb, has refined the flow and subsequent party in the park to be a great place for families to come celebration the day. "We do what we can to try to make it better every year," she said. "Even today, we have learned some things that we can take back and use to improve next year, too," she added. "But this has been a really great turnout today."
