No patriotic parade or event is complete if you're missing Mr. Abraham Lincoln, America's famous president who was credited with signing the emancipation proclamation, making all people equal under the law, thus abolishing slavery.

The 4th of July Parade on Main Street in Downtown Huntington Beach is filled with patriotism, and includes lots of icons honoring the formation of the U.S. in 1776 as one nation. Red, white and blue are the favored colors during the event with marching bands, floats, equestrian units, celebrities, and the Abe Lincoln look-alikes.
