Rose, White, and Blue Parade and Festival
July 4 @ 9:45 am - 3:00 pm PDTFree
The Rose, White & Blue Parade and Festival is a historic community celebration that brings together residents, businesses and organizations of San José and the greater Bay Area in celebration of diversity, public spirit, and our floral/agricultural heritage.
The Simorgh Dance Collective is proud to be participating in the Rose, White, and Blue parade and then performing in the festival. We will be showcasing traditional Persian and Silk Road dance, costume, and culture.
The RW&B Parade will start near the Lincoln High School campus. At the staging area, the lineup of parade participants, classic cars, bands, dance groups, and community troupes are organized while children finish decorating their bikes and wagons in red, white and blue streamers. The parade will wind its way through the Shasta/Hanchett and Rose Garden neighborhoods (Dana to Naglee to The Alameda) then will continue traveling down Naglee Avenue.
At the end of the parade’s route, we will host a classic 4th of July party. This four-hour afternoon event will host performances by parade participants, local musicians, dancers, and poets; food and culture vendors; and offer dancing and interactive activities for families. Local officials and our parade sponsors are also introduced to an appreciative crowd and sponsor festival booths.
