VIP RECEPTION (By Invitation Only)

The VIP reception offers an opportunity for freedom club members, elected officials, leaders of service organizations, leaders in the business community, and guests in the military to socialize prior to the start of the annual parade, generally 1:30 p.m. through 3:00 p.m. The Spirit of the Fourth VIP reception committee offers a variety of food, desserts, beer, wine, and bottled water that are all generously donated by local businesses each year.

We want to extend a special thank you to Windermere Homes & Estates Rancho Bernardo for hosting our 2018 and 2019 VIP reception.
Here is a short slide show of highlights of the 2019 VIP Reception .
