The 71st Annual Fourth of July Parade and Festival in Downtown Redwood City attracts thousands of spectators. This year's theme is "All Things Musical." The Festival provides an opportunity for community service organizations to raise funds by selling food, merchandise or giving out information on their organization. There are also arts and crafts booths and entertainment for the thousands of people that attend the festival immediately after the parade. And always a highlight for the entire Bay Area, the fireworks which begin around 9:30pm are an ongoing tradition and can be seen above the Port of Redwood City.
