Dear <<First Name>>,
Hope You Enjoyed Fremont's First Ever July 4th Porch Parade
Did you wander by the Old Mission to see our entry? Having one of the biggest porches in town, Old Mission San Jose entered the Fremont 4th of July Porch Parade representing the MSJ Chamber of Commerce. This new idea emerged from the disappointment that Fremont could not have a Parade this year due to COVID-19. As a substitute, residents and businesses decorated their porches patriotically. And awards were given out for various categories. Our decorations were provided by the generous Dominican Sisters. If you couldn't make it out, enjoy the 130 entries here. And while our entry didn't win, see the winners here, as they were most deserving.
