21st Annual Oceanside Independence Parade
The 21st Annual Oceanside Independence Parade was colorful and festive with funky floats, beauty queens, military bands, extravagant cars and fire trucks. Thanks to Main Street Oceanside, its hosts, volunteers and Tri-City Medical Center, for participating in this year’s 21st annual parade.
KOCT has covered the Oceanside parades for the last 30 years and our talented crew was set up by the Oceanside Civic Center to capture the colorful tradition.
Staff included Miguel Blanco, Tamara Ilich, Toby Maysey, Damian Mickey, Tyler Jardine, Bill Peters, Jake Rush, Phoenix VonHendy, Micheyl Steinway, Addison Wolf, and Angela Miranda.
The hosts of parade were Oceanside’s Jim Schroder and Kristi Hawthorne.
The show will air on KOCT’s Community Channel 18 and can be seen in Oceanside on Cox Cable and county-wide on AT&T’s U-Verse (channel 99). Also, if you have family or friends who don’t live in Oceanside they can still watch your little baton-twirler perform in the parade by going to KOCT.ORG and clicking on the “Video on Demand” banner at the top of the home page.
