Huntington Beach's annual Fourth of July parade and festival will feature more than 125 participants, including floats, performers and military groups.
Themed "Surf, Sun & Celebrate," this year's event will encompass the personality of Huntington Beach, said parade assistant director Stacey Newton.
"Huntington Beach is all about surfing, being in the sun, and the event will celebrate the Fourth of July," she said.
The celebration will welcome celebrity guests Lou Ferrigno ("The Incredible Hulk") and radio personality Tim Conway Jr., as well as a slew of area-school performing-arts groups and military personnel, including Pearl Harbor survivors.
Parade sponsors, including NuVision Federal Credit Union, Huntington Beach Hospital and Boeing, will display floats. Marina High School will also celebrate its 50th anniversary with its double-decker bus entry in the parade.
