The 30th Annual Fremont Solstice® Parade 2018

Thanks to the inspired artists, hard-working volunteers, and the cheering crowds on the street, the Fremont Solstice® Parade brought the community together for a dazzling summer celebration! Thanks also to our generous sponsors for helping to make it possible for over 40 community-based, people-powered ensembles to strut down the streets of Fremont, wending their way to Gasworks for a rockin’ after-party.  What splendid floats, costumes, and revelry!
