Thousands expected to attend Canyon Lake’s hometown Fiesta Day Parade

The Fiesta Day Parade will start at 9 a.m. at Canyon Lake Drive North and Mayflower Drive.

Canyon Lake’s Fiesta Day Parade returns on Saturday, May 27. Considered the granddaddy of all Canyon Lake events, the Fiesta Day Parade is an annual tradition that brings families, neighbors, and friends together to celebrate patriotism, honor the memory of those who served, and embrace the community’s theme of Lake Life. This event attracts 5,000 to 10,000 spectators each year.

The Fiesta Day parade features decorated golf carts, bicycles, floats, trucks, trailers, performance groups, local dignitaries, and Canyon Lake clubs, organizations, and businesses. This year’s grand marshal is the Tuesday Work Group.

Parade participants will be assigned to line up at 7 a.m. at one of four staging areas: Spray Drive, Smugglers Point Drive, Sloop Drive, or Clear Water Drive.

Starting at 9 a.m. at Canyon Lake Drive North and Mayflower Drive, the parade will make its way down Canyon Lake Drive North and turn right onto Vacation Drive. From Vacation Drive, the parade will make its way to its way to the endpoint at Lighthouse Drive, where participants can either park or pull over to unload passengers or continue down Lighthouse Drive to Canyon Club Drive and on to Canyon Lake Drive North to exit the parade/event. Canyon Club Drive and Lighthouse Drive will not be designated as one way this year, so parade participants unloading passengers are being asked to pull off to the sides and not block traffic.

The streets along the parade route will be closed to traffic at 8:30 a.m. and will remain closed until after the parade. There will be no parking Saturday, May 27, from 6 to 10:30 a.m. on Canyon Lake Drive North (from Steelhead Drive to Vacation Drive) and Vacation Drive to Lighthouse Drive.

After the parade, activities will be held from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Lodge, Sierra Park, Holiday Harbor Park, Indian Beach, and East Port Park.
