Local Olympians are set to hit the streets of Belmont Shore September 15 in a parade starting at 2 p.m. in the Belmont Plaza Olympic Pool and ending up at Second Street.
Fresh from summer competitions in London, current Long Beach champions will join former Olympic athletes as they take part in an event that will have them relaxing atop floats rather than performing for a chance at a medal.
Dedicated to promoting Long Beach as “an aquatic destination for business, education, and sports on a local, national, and international basis”, the Aquatic Capital of America hosted a previous event saluting Southern California’s Olympians July 21 at the Sea Scout Base.
Beach volleyball champion , winner of three gold medals in her sport, will be along for the ride, according to gazettes.com. Others interested in participating or learning more about the event can contact Stacey Toda of Mayor Bob Foster’s office at Stacey.firstname.lastname@example.org.
The parade’s route will begin at the Belmont Plaza Olympic Pool and continue along Termino Avenue to Livingston Drive, and onto Second Street (read more here...)
