Coronado kicks off the Independence Day weekend with an annual parade
Colon Road-After the annual Coronado Independence Day parade was cut during the worst of the pandemic last year, it returned to Orange Avenue in a roaring manner on Saturday.
“It’s really a time for everyone to come together. It’s a time to heal and a time to regain our previous lives, but even better,” said parade audience Laura Wilkinson.
Organizers said that the number of people participating in the parade this year hit a record high.
“We actually have 109 entries, more than in 2018 and 2019,” said Todd Tanghe, president of the non-profit organization Coronado on July 4.
Although the annual marchers said that the crowd does not seem to be as big as it used to be, it is still one of the largest gatherings they have seen in a while, and all this is to celebrate Independence Day.
Wilkinson said: “This parade is really about the United States and our community coming together, whether we are Democrats, Republicans, independents or whatever, we are all Americans, and we are all coronaviruses. .”
“I think the important thing is that she knows the United States and Happy Birthday in June. This is a great holiday now,” Alex Smith said while watching the parade with his daughter.
