Rancho Cordova 4th of July Parade

Lather on some sunscreen. Dust off the lawn chair and head over to Coloma Road. It's time for the Rancho Cordova Fourth of July Parade, sponsored by the Rancho Cordova Kiwanis Club. Rancho Cordova's Parade is famous for its hometown flavor. So don't be surprised if you see your next door neighbor decked out in a wacky Uncle Sam get-up for the trip down Coloma.

Thank a Kiwanian!

The Rancho Cordova Kiwanis Club heads up the parade, but it takes more than just one Kiwanian to make this extravagant Rancho Cordova tradition roll. You will be able to thank the small army of Kiwanians, all wearing their blue shirts, who will be scurrying up and down the parade route, for all the hard work it takes to launch this rolling party.
