Vashon Fourth of July Pop-Up Car Parade

The Chamber of Commerce is organizing a way to connect during this decidedly unique season.   Starting at 10 AM, Vashon businesses and community groups will gather in decorated vehicles and caravan through island neighborhoods as a ‘Pop-Up Parade’.

The Chamber put it this way “Unlike past years, when our neighbors came to a parade, this year we’re bringing the parade to our neighbors. It’s a way to spread cheer and see the people we care about—all while protecting our community’s health and safety.”

“Engineers doing seismic retrofits often concentrate on preventing structures from collapsing and killing people, but not on enabling them to survive shaking well enough to be used after an earthquake… The result is ‘throw-away’ buildings that may need to be demolished.”
