American Legion’s patriotically decorated “Old Glory Boat Parade” will cruise Newport Harbor at 1 p.m.

An event for families, the West Newport “Bike & Dog Parade” begins at 9 a.m. at the 38th Street Park on the Newport Peninsula and ends at the 44th Street Channel Place Park, with a festival to follow until 11:30 a.m.  There will be arts and crafts, carnival games, giant slides, and bouncers for the kids.

The Newport Beach “Independence Day on the Bay” celebration at the Newport Dunes Park, with the “The Bangles” as the headliner band, will begin with the park gates opening at 7 a.m.  The Beer Gardens open at 11 a.m. and the bands start playing at 11:15 and continue all day with The Bangles on stage at 7:15 p.m.  Admission to the concert area is $20 per person for walk-ins.  Parking is $60 per car and includes free admission for all occupants to the concert area.  If you plan to park, get there early to snag a parking place!  The Dunes Park celebration continues on July 5th when the Beer Gardens open at 3 p.m. with tribute bands performing at 5 p.m. and 7 p.m., and a food truck competition throughout the afternoon.
