Show your Aptos spirit and help support the Aptos 4th of July Parade! The annual World’s Shortest Parade on the 4th of July is right around the corner! It may look easy, but actually putting on this event is a herculean task! The Aptos Chamber of Commerce is looking for volunteers for both the pancake breakfast and the parade itself.

The pancake breakfast beings at 7:00 AM, and the parade itself begins at 10:00 AM. If you can help out with either the parade or the pancake breakfast, please get in contact with the Aptos Chamber at 831-688-1467 or via email,

You can also show your support by purchasing hats and t-shirts! The following is available:


  • $10 for children’s sizes
  • $12 for adults
  • $15 for women’s tank tops

Hats: $12 each

Hats and T-Shirts are available for purchase at the following locations:

Aptos Chamber of Commerce, Aptos Feed, Comerica Bank (Aptos), Pacific Coffee Roasting, Santa Cruz County Bank (Aptos), The UPS Store, and Seascape Wine & Spirits.

ALSO: the Trout Creek Marching Band is looking for musicians to march in the parade! The Trout Creek Marching Band welcomes all horn players and drummers including high school students to participate. All ability levels welcomed. They have many pro players who can carry the tunes easily- so it fun for everyone. Interested? If so, please get in touch with Dan Young,
