Fremont Arts Council’s Solstice Parade

The 29th Fremont Solstice Parade, produced by the Fremont Arts Council, blasts off on Saturday June 17, 2017 at 1:00 p.m. at 3rd and Leary Way. Come be dazzled as more than 60 community- based ensembles parade down the streets of Fremont with giant puppets, stilt walkers, floats, dancers, cyclists, and musicians in this kaleidoscope of joyous human expression.
