On Saturday, the day of the parade, things start bright and early with the Rotary Club pancake breakfast held in the Old Town Center parking lot beginning at 7 a.m. After breakfast, with stomachs well lined with pancakes, orange juice, sausage and eggs, everyone stakes out a spot along Valley Center Road to await the start of the parade.
Pre-sale tickets are available at the following locations starting in April:
- California Bank & Trust (Valley Center & Escondido)
- A1 Irrigation
- Valley Center Smiles
- Valley Roadrunner
