A cool time on a hot Fourth of July

A perennial Fourth of July parade favorite is the Manteca Fire Department hose brigade and their impromptu spraying of anyone willing to get wet at the end of the procession.

The coolest place to be in Manteca on Monday will be along North Main Street watching the Fourth of July parade even though it is supposed to top 100 degrees.

That's because a Manteca tradition- firefighters bringing up the rear of the Fourth of July parade with a hose cart racing from fire hydrant to fire hydrant - will again cool down anyone willing to get wet.

It's all part of Manteca celebrating the birth our nation.

It starts in the morning Monday at 7 o'clock at the traditional Manteca Kiwanis pancake breakfast.

The Sunrise Kiwanis are again staging the Independence Day parade that starts at 10 a.m. on North Main Street in front of the Golden West School and travels south to Center Street where it turns west and disbands at Library Park.

There is no entry free for the parade.


Pancake breakfast

The Manteca Kiwanis Club's pancake breakfast goes from 7 to 11 a.m. at the former Dave and Sylvia's Restaurant on North Main Street.

The menu consists of pancakes, scrambled eggs, ham, juice, milk and coffee. Cost for adults is $7 and children $4.
