Hey Y'all--make sure you get out to the Santa Clarita Fourth of July Parade in Newhall. Appropriately enough, it's on July 4(!) at 9:45 am. By attending, you will be fulfilling your duty as a Santa Claritan and proving that you are worthy of living in our glorious valley.
If you don't know how to get there, just drive towards Lyons Avenue and park as close as you can manage. Look for annoyed adults and restless kids and you'll know you've arrived.
To review last year's parade, which happened to be the subject of my first ever IHeartSCV post--and a damn fine one at that, if I do say so myself--go HERE!
