Founders Day Community Parade

Float from 2018 Founders Day

Applications are now available for the 2019 Rancho Cucamonga Founders Day Parade, themed “Through The Eyes of a Child: Celebrating Children’s Storybooks”. The parade is scheduled for Saturday, November 9, 2019 at 9 am. The parade route will begin on Day Creek Boulevard just south of Foothill Boulevard and continue south to Jack Benny Drive and conclude at the Rancho Cucamonga Epicenter.

The City encourages businesses, schools, youth groups and other organizations to submit parade entry applications to participate in the Founders Day Community Parade. There is no entrance fee for non-profit community organizations, and a minimal entry fee of $50 for all commercial business entries.

Groups will be scored and awards will be handed out for categories like Best Representation of Theme, Most Spirited, Most Participation, and Best Overall Float. The competitive Founders Award will be presented to the group that best embodies the spirit of the day.
