Yep, a whole year has come and gone. Suebug is the chairperson again and we're revving up for another fun time! We are #51 this year, so a little closer to the front. Check out the pics from years past to see how we roll. So far this year's RSVP list is a bit measly. Who will join us?

1. Suebug
2. Evan
3. Beadlebus

Yay for the parade! Our staging area is Jeronimo and Ridge Route with all the car clubs. Let's meet around 9:00 for decorating and Kiwanis pancake breakfast!

Suebug is the self-appointed chairperson for this year's 4th of July Parade (a Saturday!). I have to give the headcount by June 8. Who would like to join in this year?
Please RSVP here!

I am officially NOT doing the parade this year. Too many people say they can't do it or don't reply saying one way or the other. So DON'T show up thinking it's on! Look for the resurrection of our participation in 2016! A year off sometimes makes it feel new again!

Hellooooooooooo out there! Suebug is setting up the Lake Forest 4th of July Parade lineup again. This year let's get some buses rolling! It is soooooooooooo fun. July 4 is a Monday. The staging is circa 9 am, the parade runs from 10-12, leaving plenty of time afterwards for picnicking and fireworks. Let's get a great head count like the early days! I think at most we had 21 buses. What a sight we were! Let me know ASAP as I need to get the application in with a guesstimate and start going to the planning meetings.

I have had more interest than usual this year! Yeah! Seems we will have some Beetles rolling behind the buses which will be great! I have a planning meeting to attend this Tuesday which will nail down where we are in the lineup. So far, this is our staging area information. On Parade Day, staging begins at 8:30 AM at the following area: Ridge Route West (for Car Clubs - enter from Jeronimo). We usually park our vehicles, get the decorating going, walk over to El Toro High School for the Kiwanis Pancake Breakfast, come back and finish decorating then waitwaitwait til it's our turn to roll.
More info to be posted after the meeting on the 28th.

Ok all you VW parade-ers, here's the scoop. We are #52 in the 100+ participants lineup this year. Totally beats #84 last time. Directions and time are still the same. Exit the 5 freeway at El Toro and go east. Turn left on Jeronimo. Turn right on Ridge Route and follow the officials who will point to where we are supposed to be. This is the car club staging area ONLY. You cannot enter any other way or they will yell and scream at you. Don't try to come in from Lake Forest as there is a 5K race there. Our staging area is super close to El Toro High School where the $6.00 Kiwanis Pancake Breakfast will be. After our parade travel is over we will be directed out on Ridge Route towards Trabuco Rd. We are supposed to undress the buses and beetles pronto as all the car clubs will be using this area. Put on and/or bring your red/white/blue finest! Kinda struck me funny as #51 is a Christian church and band, then #52 Hitler's cars, then #53 an AYSO team sucking up our exhaust. I hope those little kids live through it. See you all at 8:30 am on Monday, July 4th!!!!

What do we need to do to join in the parade. We have a 71 westy and my wife loves decorating it. We live in Laguna hills.

Hi to all you past and present fans of the parade. Taking this year off! Too much other life taking up precious time to pull off the organization of a group for 2017. Stay tuned for next year though!
