On Tuesday, July 4th, 2017 we are marching in Westchester’s Fourth of July Parade. The LAX Coastal Chamber of Commerce will present our community’s version of a Norman Rockwell painting — our tribute to America’s birthday. Each year, neighbors come together in a sea of red, white and blue to express their pride in country and community.
This Independence Day, please join us at this heartwarming community event, featuring the theme: “An American Adventure!”
