Independence Day Cruise brings patriotism to King City

Community organizes Fourth of July caravan in place of canceled parade

KING CITY — One dozen vehicles and a bicyclist joined the Independence Day Cruise on July 4 in King City.

The cruise was organized by Elaine Rosales after official citywide celebrations were canceled.

Vehicles passed by some neighborhoods and stayed mostly on larger roads, where community members could watch safely while social distancing, showing off their decorations and waving to anyone who came out to see them. Some residents, especially on Mildred Avenue, set up chairs to watch and cheer on the vehicles.

“We had great responses, the community loved it and I hope we can do it again soon,” Rosales said.

After completing their drive through town, which took about 45 minutes, members of the group decided to make a second pass through Broadway before heading out to Pine Canyon.

“It was so fun, just hoped more people would have come out, but it was early and everyone that showed up had a great time,” Rosales said.
