Seaside 4th Of July Parade

Every year thousands stand and gather to partake in Seaside’s 4th of July parade, located right in the heart of 30A. “The parade predates Seaside, making its inaugural debut in 1976 when a band of Seagrove locals charted a course from Hickory Street, south to Highway 30A, through the dunes and onto the beach for a day and night of revelry. Hickory Street sits three blocks east of Robert’s Way, the eastern entrance of Seaside!” 30A Realty had the honor of participating, in the 43rd annual ride! At 30A Realty, we believe no holiday is too small to celebrate so there is no doubt we like to go all out on Independence Day. We kicked off the morning at sunrise with mimosas and muffins, and then set out for our red, white, and blue adventure. We even brought our golden retriever, Edi! This year, If you were on the sidelines, you may have spotted us in a hunter green 1978 Toyota Land Cruiser. This is our owner, Jacob Watkins’ prized beach vehicle that also conveniently doubles as the 30A Realty mascot! As everyone cheerfully watched and applauded, we had a heck of a time throwing out 30A Realty branded hand fans, koozies, sunglasses, and everyone’s favorite…candy! The parade is a not to miss event every year, not only on 30A but across the south entirely! It truly is the all American epitome. The parade begins every year at 8am with the first car to leave from the Seagrove Plaza and ending at the Seaside Square. In 2020 if you happen to find your way to 30A for the fourth, we look forward to seeing you on the sidelines!
