55th Annual Swallow's Day Parade in San Juan Capistrano

This is a great day.  Several of us will be taking the train up to San Juan Capistrano.  Please contact me for more information.

| History |

The 55th annual Swallows' Day Parade will be held on Saturday, March 23rd, 2013. The Parade is part of the Fiesta de la Golondrinas celebrating the legend of the return of the swallows to the San Juan Capistrano Mission on St. Joseph's Day, March 19th.

The theme for the 2013 Swallows' Day Parade is 'Happy Trails'!

The Swallows' Day Parade is the nation's largest non-motorized parade. It is organized and presented by the San Juan Capistrano Fiesta Association and takes place right in down-town San Juan Capistrano.

The Parade and Mercado can be a full day of family fun, celebrating the Old West and the return of the swallows from their winter home in Argentina. Arrive early, as most street closures are in effect by 10:00 a.m. with the parade beginning promptly at 11 a.m.!

For more information call (949) 493-1976.



Note: There will be construction at the Ortega Highway (74) and the I-5 Interchange during the 2013 Fiesta de las Golindrinas. It will not affect the parade route or parade times, but may cause minor congestion at that intersection. Consider alternate routes to enter the city such as the Junipero Serra or Camino Capistrano exits from the I-5.
