Manteca is once again having a Fourth of July parade.

This year’s theme is “Honoring Our Vietnam Veterans.”

The deadline to enter the parade is noon on June 29.

There is no entry fee as the Sunrise Kiwanis underwrite associated costs from their staging of the annual Manteca Pumpkin Fair.

It is one of more than $40,000 in an average year in support the service club gives the community as the result of the Pumpkin Fair.

 The parade starts at 10 a.m. It will go down Main Street from Golden West School.  It then turns right to head west to Library Park where it will disperse.

Monica Mendoza is chairing the parade. If you have questions leave a name and number at 209 880-9755.
