Flag Day Parade

IMG_0156The La Mesa Flag Day Parade is set to continue its 22-year long tradition on Saturday, June 1, 2019.  The community comes together each year to recognize the organizations and individuals that make La Mesa “The Jewel of the Hills.” With the recent upgrades to La Mesa Blvd, the built-in flag pole holes will be filled with American flags to line the village for this patriotic celebration. With a short route, coming in at just under a mile, the La Mesa Flag Day Parade is a great showcase of marching bands, clubs, businesses and local dignitaries.  

Thanks to coordination from a team of all-star volunteers, the parade is a showcase of their IMG_0569hard work and dedication. From taking applications for participants, finding sponsors and corralling the equestrian units in the staging area, there is nothing this team cannot do. The wonderful group that facilitates this parade draws from personal relationships and experiences in our community to put together one of the most unique parade line-ups in San Diego County. Without their year-round support the parade would not be able to happen.

Entrants, volunteers and donations are currently being accepted for 2019. For more information please go to the Events page or email FlagDayHelp@ci.la-mesa.ca.us
