The Lake Forest 4th of July Parade needs JEEPS!

Year after year I go to see the annual Lake Forest Independence Day Parade. As I watch the Corvettes and Mustangs go by I notice an American Icon is missing – JEEP. This year I hope to change that. If you live in or near Lake Forest, we want your Jeep in the parade. There is NO COST for this. Just a commitment that you and your Jeep will be in the parade on July 4. From bone stock to out-of-control monster rigs, I’m hoping to get a little bit of everything (but no 22” chrome rims and low profile tires PLEASE ). Classics especially encouraged to join us. I need to keep the Jeep count below 20 and I want to submit the application by May 09 so please let me know as soon as you can if you can commit to this event. Once we have a group of 10 Jeeps I will submit the application.

No one? Where's the patriotism? I know there are Jeep owners in Lake Forest, Mission Viejo, Laguna Hills, and surrounding areas. I see them driving around all the time. We have a group of 5 Jeeps so far and need about 5 for 10 more. Let me know by May 8. I'll be signing up and providing the number of Jeeps on May 9.

Big Time patriotism here..(Ex Navy and work on base taking care of the Seabees). I'd totally be interested in participating if it was a bit more local. As it is, I drive hours to do anything in my Jeep averaging about $500 a month in Gas. I tell ya what...you pay for my gas, and I'm there!

Yeah, I would say Ventura would be a pretty far drive. Hoping to find that same enthusiasm closer to this area.

Shoot, I read your post and I was already picturing me and my Jeep in this parade, what I would wear, the US flag I would strap to my Jeep. I was getting ready to reply with an affirmative, then I remembered that I'll be out of town that week. Bummer! I would have been all over this otherwise.

Hopefully you're leaving town for fun and not work.

Looks like we just hit the number of Jeeps limit for this event. Thanks everyone who is able to participate. We are short a pre-1970s Jeep so if anyone out there has one and can participate, I'd still like to hear from you.

Sadly we lost a CJ and YJ for this event due an accident and a break down so there are two more spots left. If anyone in the South OC area would like to join our group in this parade, please send me a PM.
