Celebrating Together

Spirit of the Fourth celebrated its 44th year of serving Rancho Bernardo and surrounding communities by hosting its annual Independence Day Parade. Retired United States Air Force Captain Vicki Nenner was chosen as the Parade Grand Marshal to reflect this year’s Women in the Military theme. Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, high school bands, beauty queens, unicyclists, drum majorettes, business and community leaders, and hundreds of local residents all gathered to celebrate the independence of our nation and commemorate the sacrifices of those who made our freedom possible. The popular all-day event was held at Webb Park and other venues in the RB area.
