Fourth of July parades and festivities in Atascadero and Templeton, photos

July 5, 2022


In a blast from a different era, locals greeted friends and neighbors at Templeton’s Fourth of July Parade. The parade included musicians, charros, politicians, floats and antique cars.

Further south, hundreds attended the Annual Colony Days Bluegrass Freedom Festival in Atascadero, including many families.
