Social Talk about town logo

We recently celebrated Flag Day and Independence Day is only a few weeks away. Social media is all abuzz with patriotic posts.

The City of Brentwood is promoting its popular hometown parade on July Fourth. The parade will begin 9 a.m. Check-in time for parade participants begins at 7:30 a.m., and all entries must be checked in by 8:15 a.m. Parade goers are encouraged to dress in red, white and blue clothing, wave flags and celebrate with your family by kicking off Independence Day at the downtown celebration.

The City of Brentwood Parks & Recreation Department is also looking for volunteers to assist with the Fourth of July parade. Volunteers will assist in both the main and kid’s parades with a variety of set-up and cleanup tasks. Volunteer hours are 7 to 11 a.m. This is a great way to support your community (and a great opportunity for students needing to complete volunteer hours!) For more information, please call 925-516-5444.

This year’s Fourth of July celebration in Antioch will offer a full day of fun. The parade starts at 11 a.m. in downtown Antioch on 2nd Street. The event following the parade will feature family fun, live entertainment, a car show and more. The event is located at the Contra Costa County Fairgrounds, at 10th and L streets, from 4 to 11 p.m. The fireworks start at approximately 9:30 p.m. and will run until just after 10 p.m.

Even the local Home Depot was a topic of patriotic conversation on Nextdoor this week. One local resident posted that the flag flying over Home Depot in Brentwood was not properly lit at night. The topic attracted many opinions, but the majority agreed with the Flag Code, which states that a flag that is flown 24 hours a day must be properly illuminated during the hours of darkness. The local comments made on social media seemed to have found their way to the right person at Home Depot and the flag is now lit at night.
