The parade will see a record turnout. It starts at 10 a.m. along Orange Avenue, from 1st Street to Churchill Place. Weekend celebrations in Coronado will be held throughout the weekend, with a fireworks display and a demonstration by the Navy Leap Frogs Sunday.

"Everyone is excited about the festivities, the parade and fireworks because of last years (when) nothing happened," stated Benny Castillo front desk manager at El Cordova Hotel on Orange Avenue.

Todd Tanghe, the president of the non-profit Coronado Fourth of July organisation, says this year's parade could be their largest ever.

Tanghe stated that "we have 109 entries" which is more than 2018, 2019 and 2018.

The El Cordova Hotel has all of its rooms booked for the holiday weekend. Castillo is pleased with the change.

He said, "We are in hospitality and there were no people to be hospitable last year." It's nice. It's great to meet people and be part of something.
