This Land Is Your Land!
Every year for the past 30 years on a tiny little street called Neptune in the quaint, quiet, funky and laid back surfing colony of Leucadia, California hosts their totally community driven & non-permitted 4th of July Parade and Street party.
Folks in the parade join the many folks partying and BBQing along this 1.25 mile trek along with surfers, kids on bicycles and Mothers pushing baby buggies. It's truly a great tribute to heart felt traditions and true Americana
Lot’s of folks from our little community and even some folks from Tokyo, Japan joined in the high spirited festivities.
Leucadia, California is Perhaps the closest thing to Lahiena, Maui on this side of the Pacific.
Great times were had by all at our Annual Neptune Ave 4th of July parade in the quiet little surf colony of Leucadia, California.
Every year old Woodies and myriad classics line Neptune reminding us of the Rockwell days of old and filling the air with splendid nostalgia
