July 4th Parade

 The Matt Garcia Foundation proudly participated in the City of Fairfield’s Independence Day Parade. Following in Matt’s footsteps, we take pride in our City, and we realize how truly blessed we are to live in America. Although our Country is not perfect, it is still the Land Of The Free and The Home Of The Brave, where each of us can be the change we wish to see in the world. Let’s Keep The Dream Alive together!

July Fun Facts


July is the ultimate delicious month with several fun food observances. In the U.S., there are at least three: National Watermelon Month, National Hot Dog Month, and National Ice Cream Month. Yum!

July is also Disability Pride and Minority Mental Health Awareness Month. 

Here in the U.S, July is probably most known for Independence Day commemorating the Declaration of Independence, which was ratified by the Second Continental Congress on July 4, 1776, establishing the United States of America.
