Mountain House Prepares for Inaugural Independence Day Parade and Festivities, Marking New City Status in California

Mountain House, the newest addition to California’s cities, is gearing up for a vibrant Independence Day celebration this Thursday.

Recently incorporated as the state’s 483rd city, the day kicks off with a spirited parade starting at 9 a.m.

The route begins at Central Community Park on 25 Main St., winding its way down Central Parkway and Main Street southward to Heritage Drive before looping back to the park.

Following the parade, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Central Community Park will transform into a hub of festivity.

Expect live music, a lively kids’ fun zone, tantalizing food trucks, and local artisan vendors showcasing their crafts.

The city is encouraging attendees to flaunt their patriotic spirit by donning red, white, and blue attire.

Mountain House: From Ballot to City Council

Mountain House’s journey to cityhood began with Measure D on the March ballot, where voters overwhelmingly supported the creation of the city, effective July 1.

This Monday marked a historic milestone as Mountain House convened its first City Council meeting.

Mayor Andy Su and council members Matt Disko, Ronna Green, Daniel Harrison, and Bernice King Tingle presided over the meeting.

City business included appointing a mayor pro tempore, selecting Steven Pinkerton as city manager, and formalizing roles for John Bakker as city attorney and Camilla Getz as assistant city attorney.

This inaugural celebration not only marks Independence Day but also the beginning of a new chapter for Mountain House as it joins California’s vibrant community of cities.
