Once again it is that time we don the red, white, and blue and get ready for Crestline’s annual hoedown. I have gotten a few emails about this year’s festivities and so I wanted to share with everyone. I hope you get a chance to come up this year. With the 4th falling on a Monday the chamber of commerce is starting Friday night and going all the way to the 4th with activities.
Here is what is planned:
Friday, July 1st at dusk there will be a viewing of National Treasure on the lake.
OnSaturday, July 2nd the parade starts at Fern Drive and goes down Lake Drive. The parade stages on Fern Drive at 8am and will start at 10am. From 10am to dusk most of the business will be having events along Lake Drive (surprisingly though this year they will not be closing down Lake Drive to traffic). As soon as it is dark there will be fireworks over Lake Gregory.
On Sunday, July 3rd there will be a sailing regatta at 3pm and boat parade at 7pm.
On Monday, July 4th is the community picnic at the ball fields from 11amto 5pm.
The only issues you should see for parking will be on Saturday and Monday. On Saturday I would avoid driving down Lake Drive if possible. My suggestion that day would be to park and drive along straight way road. It is right behind Lake Drive and will be easier to manage.
On Monday if you find that the parking by the ball fields is full you can park along San Moritz drive or by the water slides and walk the trail over to the ball fields (about .25 miles). Hope you make it up this weekend. It looks like the weather is going to provide for an awesome weekend. For more information go to the Crestline Chamber of Commerce website.
