Piedmont Celebrated the 4th of July

Community Band comes into view

Strike up the Band!


Piedmont celebrated Independence Day  with its traditional parade on Highland Avenue ending at Piedmont Park for a community picnic with musical entertainment.  The community participated with the Community Band, various community organizations, and a bagpipe band echoing the city’s Scottish traditions. Many, many, many, many antique and classic cars participated in the parade.

Parade viewers were entertained by their elected officials, parading dogs, UC Aggies’ large alumnae marching band, the balloon platoon, local musical groups, a steam engine, AC Transit’s miniature bus, scouts, candy throwers, Uncle Sam, and  others.

The weather was pleasant – not too hot or cold – just right. The parade and park activities were another successful July 4th celebration for Piedmont and the community at large.
