Don’t miss the biggest party of the summer on Thursday, July 4th, when Templeton comes alive in the spirit of Independence and the American Way. Start your morning with the annual Templeton Firefighter’s Association Pancake Breakfast at the fire station. Just $8 per adult/$5 for kids under 10 gets you a great breakfast, but get your tickets early (from any firefighter, at the station or TCSD, after June 1) as they usually sell out. No holiday breakfast is complete without a Bloody Mary or Mimosa which the Templeton Chamber will be serving up just across the street in the Templeton Park, as we prepare for the Independence Day Parade, which starts at 10AM and is produced by the Rotary Club of Templeton. Applications for floats and entries can be obtained on the Rotary Club website: templetonrotary.org, or you can pick them up in person and drop them off at the Templeton Chamber office, 321 Main Street or the Templeton Community Service District Office, 420 Crocker Street. The parade will entertain the gathered crowds all the way up Crocker Street and back down Main Street from 1st to 8th Street. After the parade, head over to the Templeton Park, where the party continues with food and craft vendors, games, live music, ice cold beer and good old fashion family fun until 3:00PM. Templeton is one of the few communities on the Central Coast that does still allow personal fireworks, so be sure to purchase the “Safe N Sane” brands from one of the non-profit booths in town, and be sure you are lighting them in an approved area of town.
For Vendor Applications please contact Gail or Joyce at the Templeton Chamber of Commerce (805) 434-1789 or firstname.lastname@example.org
