Fourth of July Celebration
Directors The 105th 4th of July tradition in Huntington Beach includes the Centennial Celebration of our City this year, recognizing the past, present and very bright future of Huntington Beach. Parade entries always span the decades with both theme and period representation of the many community groups and significant milestones in the history of the armed forces. School children have been busy all year learning about the history of Huntington Beach’s founders and their contributions to making it a great seaside city. Special thanks to the dedicated Fourth of July Executive Board who give their time and diverse talents and our appreciation to the city departments; Police, Fire, Community Services and Public Works to name a few. It’s all a joint effort and labor of love each year.
Stacey Newton, Assistant Director, 2009 Fourth of July Celebration
Enjoy your day with us and Happy 4th of July to everyone!

Fourth of July Celebration
The 4th of July
Salutes the Centennial Marching bands, colorful floats, kids with ice cream and cotton candy…..Sprinkle with red, white and blue, bursting fireworks in the night sky, the sound of waves on the shore….and you have the 105th Annual Huntington Beach 4th of July Parade and Celebration. The city’s inaugural parade in 1904 commemorated the arrival of the first electric passenger train, linking the area with Long Beach and Los Angeles. Through the years residents and visitors have witnessed some spectacular sights here in Huntington Beach. As the yearly parade drew more and more visitors, movie stars and dignitaries began to take notice. President Franklin Roosevelt served as the most famous grand marshal, followed by Hollywood movie stars such as Jane Mansfield, Natalie Wood, Zsa Zsa Gabor, Dorothy Lamoure, Mickey Rooney and Shirley Jones. And we can’t forget to mention out-of-this-world Astronaut Buzz Aldrin. This year’s celebration salutes the City of Huntington Beach’s Centennial Anniversary. From oil town to destination resort and premiere location to call home, Huntington Beach is proud of its legacy. And in commemoration of the city’s Centennial, this 4th of July event’s Official Program will be placed in the city’s time capsule to be opened in 2059! On behalf of all the volunteers who give their time and energy to planning this celebration, we hope you and your family enjoy the Independence holiday here with us in Huntington Beach.
Carole Ann Wall
Most Seasoned 4th of July Volunteer Carole Ann was never content with being a spectator. Her skills as a former broadcaster, journalist and publisher, combined with a desire to give back to her community, have created a legacy of community involvement unmatched in Huntington Beach. The 4th of July Celebration has benefited from her generous volunteer spirit too. She served as President of the Fourth of July Executive Board three terms and held numerous appointments as a member of the board and member at large in an uninterrupted span of more than 36 years. Carole Ann received the first distinguished Bill Gallienne Award dedicated to an outstanding volunteer who devoted extraordinary time, energy and expertise to the parade and celebration’s planning and direction. Carole Ann continues her service to the 4th of July effort through her gracious hospitality extended to sponsors and guests of the Parade visiting the Hospitality Pavilion at the Pier Plaza all day on the 4th. The Fourth of July Board recognizes Carole Ann Wall as one of its most valued members and wishes to thank her for her years of dedication.
Look to the Sky! Parade Flyover
Today’s parade-goers will look to sky and hear the roar of a military and police aircraft flyover the length of the parade route. The Formation Flying Team known as “Eagle Flight”, a team of four T-34 military training aircraft provided by the T34 Heritage Foundation at March Air Reserve Base leads the spectacular flyover. The all volunteer pilots and crews fly these aircraft to preserve the history and heritage of the venerable Air Force and Navy T-34 Primary Trainer. A newer version of this aircraft is in use today as the primary basic training aircraft in the US Navy. Following theT-34s, two UH-60 Blackhawk helicopters from the California National Guard, First of the 140th Aviation Air Assault Unit from the Armed Forces Reserve Base, Los Alamitos. The flight lead will be CWO5 Chris Trautwein, a resident of Huntington Beach. Finally, our own Huntington Beach Police Helicopter Unit flying McDonald Douglas MD-520 NOTAR helicopters will round out the flight.
A Fourth of July Welcome
from Mayor Keith Bohr Welcome to the Annual Celebration of our fabulous Fourth of July Parade honoring our City’s 100th Year of Incorporation! One hundred and five years ago, the residents of Huntington Beach held a Fourth of July parade even before the City was incorporated. That is how important this event is to our community. Even though the automobiles have changed, the floats are more “high tech” and the band members sometimes wear Hawaiian shirts and sunglasses, one thing has not changed… The Huntington Beach Annual Fourth of July Parade is still the best community event of the year and celebrates our city’s commitment to our country and its independence. It showcases the dedication of our residents and leaders and demonstrates the collaboration of our volunteer groups, elected officials and businesses. Congratulations to our grand marshals and honored guests who are the ambassadors of the parade. We are so proud to have you all in our city to share this extraordinary day with the Huntington Beach Community. The City’s Centennial has been celebrated all year starting with the “Surf City USA” float featured in the Pasadena Tournament of Roses Parade on January 1st. A portion of that float is featured in today’s Fourth of July Parade. The Centennial Celebration features events each month that focus on one of the unique qualities of Huntington Beach. The calendar of events is located on the Centennial website HB100Years.org. “The Fourth of July Celebrates the Centennial” is the perfect theme to honor the City’s 100 years and help meet the mission statement of the Centennial to “…educate, celebrate and commemorate.” We wish you all — residents and visitors alike — a safe and entertaining July Fourth. Thank you for joining us to celebrate 100 plus years of our community’s best event. Your support and demonstrated patriotism is what makes Huntington Beach so special and this event so wonderful.

Fireworks Over the Ocean
Grab your blankets and beach chairs and come to the beach — all 7 ½ miles of coastline along PCH — where you’ll have front row seats for the fireworks show over the ocean. Shot from the Huntington Beach Pier, this year’s fireworks spectacular will be a bigger and longer show in honor of the city’s Centennial Celebration. Twentyeight shells per minute will burst from the pier with a total program of 1335 shells during a show that will last a record 30 minutes. Once again Zambelli Internationale Fireworks Company will provide the show — one of more than 4,000 fireworks shows each year with an average of 2,000 shows on the 4th of July. The show starts at 9:00 p.m. Come early to save your spot on the sand for the perfect ending to Independence Day in Huntington Beach. Photo courtesy of James Rumley
The 4th of July Salutes the Centennial
The Fourth of July Board is thrilled to honor the City’s 100th Birthday along with the 105th Annual 4th of July Celebration here in Huntington Beach. Those of us who have lived or worked in the city for more than a few decades have seen the bluffs along PCH transformed from oil derricks to a grassy overlook, the Seacliff area transformed into beau tiful housing developments and our downtown business district become a touri st destination that draws millions each year. We applaud our city fathers both then and now for their foresight, planning and accomplishments that have made Huntington Beach an ideal place to live, work and play. Patricia Stier, Director Stacey Newton, Assistant Director Fourth of July Executive Board

C e l e b r at i on I arrived in Huntington Beach on July 4, 1926. I was 16 and had come to HB to live with my aunt. July 4, 2009 will mark my 83rd year of living in Huntington Beach.
My thoughts go back to the Downtown July 4th Celebrations in the 1930s. After the morning parade, there were events all day with fireworks for the week, North of the post office. Seeing the dozens and dozens of twins for the Twins Convention on the beach – Lucile Brewster was always a highlight. There were pie eating d r a o B e contests for kids under 16, v i cut e x E y l u r J to ec ir which I won 3 years in a Assistant D 4th of Stacey Newton, s ck ir V a row!

Miss America will ride in the famed annual parade as one stop on her year-long speaking tour promoting the Miss America organization and her personal platform of Community Service. She is also the Goodwill Ambassador for MAO’s national platform partner, Children’s Miracle Network. In this role, she travels the country raising awareness about CMN and visiting children’s hospitals across North America.

Drum and Bugle Corps The Drum & Bugle Corps activity had its beginnings following World War I, when returning veterans formed local groups to perform in parades and at standstill concerts. Drum Corps sprang up in hundreds of small towns and cities nation-wide during a boom of patriotic celebration after both world wars. Junior drum & bugle corps were organized for youth, and Senior drum & bugle corps for adults and many veterans themselves. The Bluecoats were founded in 1972. The Bluecoats are regarded as one of the worldâ€™s finest outdoor pageantry organizations, combining the demanding athleticism of extreme sports with an electrifying jazz musical program and stunning visual choreography, thrilling audiences throughout the U.S. and Canada. The Bluecoats has been a DCI World Finalist (top 12 in North America) since 1987. The Bluecoats tour averages over 12,000 miles each summer, with the corps performing at more than 30 events and competitions, often traveling over 300 miles in a single night. At their performance destination they take the field to deliver a vibrant, emotional, and electrifying musical and visual performance.

City of Huntington Beach & Beach Blvd. of Cars: Consider This:
Buying vehicles in Huntington Beach brings needed money to our City… Buying in HB: Cost of vehicle - $30,000 Money directly to HB $300
Buying Somewhere Else: Cost of vehicle - $30,000 Money directly to HB $0 Consider: Our community uses money it receives throughsales tax to help pay for critical services. This money, some $17 million total each year, goes in the General Fund. It is used for Operating Expenses, Public Safety, Capital Improvements in our neighborhoods, filling potholes, trimming trees and fixing streets.
Let's put the $300 in perspective… With $300 Our City could… Fill 5 potholes at $65 each. Trim 7 trees at $48 each. Replace 1 street light fixture at $280.
