Everyone loves a parade. On Saturday, June 10th at 10am, one of the largest and most family-friendly events on the West Coast will occur– The City of San Mateo ( and the San Mateo County Fair ( – will kick-off a mile-long procession of bands, floats and balloons.

“This parade is a long-standing dream, and it’s a wonderful and timely opportunity to bring our community together, to celebrate our amazing diversity, showcase our cultural richness and share our pride in San Mateo,” said Maureen Freschet, City Councilwoman of San Mateo.

“We are proud to celebrate our City and County!” said Dana Stoehr, CEO of the San Mateo County Events Center and Fair. “The San Mateo County Fair celebrates the best of our city and county. What better way to welcome in our Fair partners, participants and attendees than with a grand opening day celebration such as this.”

With the theme of “Spring into Summer” the parade will start on Franklin Parkway and culminate at the entrance to the Fair. Over 10,000 people are expected to attend along the one-mile route.
