Linda Vista Multi-Cultural Parade

ParadeThe 31st annual Linda Vista Multi-Cultural Parade was held on Saturday, April 23, from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm. Its purpose was to promote cultural awareness and understanding within San Diego.

Many Kearny JROTC cadets who attended the parade had come to school by 9:00 a.m. on Saturday. After about 1 hour of marching rehearsal, they started marching down the street. While they were marching, many people on the wayside cheered for them with enthusiasm. During the parade and throughout the day, attendees were able to enjoy a fun and exciting fair.

Amazingly, it took about 2 hours to march there and walk all the way back to Kearny. However, everyone did a great job, and I was really proud of attending the JROTC parade.
