4th of July Parade Information

4th of July Parade


The parade starts at the RSF School parking lot at La Granada and Avenida De Acacias and goes through the village to end where it starts.   Form up for the parade starts at 12- 12:30.   The parade starts at 1:00 pm.  There is a community BBQ immediately following in the south village park. To make the form  up easier, please keep this in mind:

1. Follow the marshals instructions for form up. Cars go against the curb- don't take up the parking spaces! Make two or three lines if needed.  Do not block El Fuego.
2. Kids have to wear Helmets if they are on bicycles (good idea for skateboards too).  Parents have to monitor all of their kids throughout the parade route.
3.  Have your children to stay in formation.  It is dangerous if they run ahead or through the parade. 
4.Please, no candy in cars, floats. Throwing candy causes small kids to run into the moving vehicles.
5.  Antique cars overheat.  If the car has radiator or cooling issues, it may be best not to drive it. 
6. Only well trained parade horses should participate.  The route is noisy with loud speakers, sirens and lots of people.  If the horses cannot be controlled safely we will ask them to move out of the parade.
7. Have Fun!

San Diego County Crime Stoppers and investigators from the Vista Sheriff's Station are asking for the public's help to identify and locate three unknown suspects wanted in connection with a burglary that occurred in the unincorporated area of Vista. On April 25, 2018, at about 4:40 p.m., three Black males burglarized a house in the 1000 block of Sugarbush Drive in unincorporated Vista.

The suspects took a Barska safe, rifles and handguns in the burglary.

Home Security Inspection Survey

Home Security Inspection Survey

Over the past few weeks we have seen an increase in requests from residents asking for advice on "beefing up" their home security.  This is a great idea!   We use a FREE resource available from the Sheriff's Department.

The San Diego County Sheriff has Crime Prevention Specialists that work out of the North Coastal Station (our area).  They will come out to the home or business and conduct a free home inspection security survey.  The survey is done by the specialist who is a trained Sheriff's Dept. employee.  They offer many tips and suggestions on how to "harden the target" and improve the security of the home or business.  They are not financially driven by a product or company so you know their opinions and advice are honest real world suggestions.  Many of the improvements you can do are very easy to do and may not cost you anything!  They are very familiar with current crime trends county wide.

To schedule a home inspection, please call their office - you can connect with either

Burglaries are Increasing

Burglaries in the area (and surrounding areas) are on the rise....   A reminder- please lock your doors and windows, arm your alarm systems.  If you are leaving the home, make the house look like someone is around- leave lights on timers,  pick up newspapers.  If the house looks empty then you are increasing your chances of being a target.   Lock up your valuable items.

If you see suspicious people or vehicles, call us or the Sheriff right away.  So often we get information  a day or two late -  call right away when you see the activity or persons.
