The United States of America is more than just a land within a defined border - it is an ideal for which the American People strive. Humankind is uplifted when we each have before us a principle that, if each embrace it, will bring the nation as close as can be to grace. We set aside selfish gain and each uphold the inalienable Rights of the other that ours may truly become the Land of the Free. The theme for Santa Barbara’s 51st Annual July 4th of July Parade is America the Beautiful. In a poem, later a song, of this title, we find words inspired by a vision of the America that can be. The events of the day will celebrate the beauty of this nation, its land and its people united in common purpose as Americans.
2013 Theme: America the Beautiful
America the Beautiful is the title of the American hymn, penned by Katharine Lee Bates.
