RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA, Calif. - June 16, 2014 - PRLog -- COTO DE CAZA, Calif. (June 16, 2014) – Summer would not be complete without Coto de Caza’s 33rd Annual 4th of July Parade and Festival, hosted by The Rotary Club of Coto de Caza/Rancho Santa Margarita. The parade features classic cars, golf carts, self-made floats, sports teams, and performance groups for friends, family, and the community. This year, the participation of Coto de Caza residents Dave and Barbara Hubert will be a featured parade highlight; they are excited to introduce their shiny, red-and-gold antique steam fire engine to this year’s Independence Day celebration. Weighing in at a whopping 10,700 pounds this 1902 fire engine will be pulled by the traditional three-horse-hitch of powerful draft horses. They will also be accompanied by their dog, Dottie the Dalmatian. Event festivities will kick off at 10 a.m. with the parade starting at Plano Trabuco and Coto de Caza Drive and ending at the Festival housed at the Sports Park in Coto de Caza.

Open to all ages, activities at the Festival will include carnival games and bounce houses. A beer garden will be available for adults, and food vendors will be on-site. Additionally, the Rotary Club will spearhead specialty sponsorship opportunities including fair vendor booths and parade entries.

“We look forward to this event each year because it allows locals to come together and be involved in celebrating the freedoms we have as Americans” said Derek Godfrey, president of the Rotary Club of Coto De Caza/Rancho Santa Margarita says. “We are incredibly grateful for all the vendors and sponsors that help with putting this celebration together, and are excited to have the Hubert’s antique steam fire engine accompanied by Dottie the Dalmatian ride down our streets to educate our youth about fire safety.”

For more than 30 years, the Rotary Club of Coto de Caza/Rancho Santa Margarita del Sol has supported community outreach efforts that include fundraising to help the needy or sponsor school programs, “hands-on” projects, such as building homes, bus shelters and parks, helping Marine families left behind, helping abused women and children, and much more. This year, all event proceeds will benefit local youth programs, such as high school scholarship funds, leadership training at RYLA, and local Boy Scout Troop 636.
