6 pm Circumnavigation Bike Ride
This event is unsanctioned and unofficial and unconfirmed.

Gathering of bicycle riders that meet up at Star Park and ride around (circumnavigate) the entire “island” traditionally on the evening before the 4th. 
See video from a previous year.

Circumnavigation Update: The Coronado Times spoke to the City of Coronado and they said people will most likely do this both days: Sat. July 2nd and Sun. July 3rd. There is a concert in Spreckels Park on Sun. July 3rd at 6pm, so that is why some people are doing it on Sat. July 2nd. Since this is an unofficial event, there is no specific person or group organizing it. Therefore, no “official” answer. Either way, enjoy the bike ride around the “island.”

July 3rd Events

6 pm – Concert in the Park 🎶🎵  Ron’s Garage, sponsored by Linda & Rich Hascup and Dr. Electric

6:30 pm – All Class Reunion 
Coronado Golf Course Feast and Fareway
