Dear Friends and Music Lovers,

The Ontario Chaffey Community Show Band will present their final performance of the 2021-2022 season with rousing patriotic music for the close of the Ontario All-States July 4th Parade down Euclid Avenue on Monday morning.  We invite you to come out and bring your lawn chairs and picnic baskets to have a grand old time celebrating the 4th of July.  As soon as the parade is over there will be lots of room for everybody to find a spot on the grass in front of the Bandshell at the beautiful Ontario Town Square located one block East of Euclid Ave. between the corners of "C" Street and Lemon and "B" Street and Lemon.  Just a very short walk from the end of the parade, just south of the Wells Fargo Bank building.  Weather predictions are for very pleasant temperatures for Monday in Ontario, so come join in the fun for Independence Day!
