Fiesta Day will kick off with its traditional parade starting at 9 a.m. It will march through the community starting at Gulf Stream Dr. and ending at the Lodge. Below are some important reminders for the day of the event:

  • Parade line-up will begin at 7 a.m. on Canyon Lake Drive North at the four parade stations; Yellow Feather Drive, Mayflower Drive, Spray Drive and Smugglers Point Drive.
  • All streets along the parade route will close at 8:30 a.m. and the parade will begin at 9 a.m. However, spectators can walk up the sides of all parade streets to watch the parade.
  • Residents should ask their guests to arrive before 8 a.m. and to use the North Gate or Main Gate to access the community. If arriving after the parade (approximately 10:30 a.m.), they may use the East Gate or North Gate.
  • “Day-of” registrations will not be allowed in the parade. Questions? Contact Parade Director Lyne Hall at 951-244-2101 or email
