ENSENADA - Whales Tail 4th of July event

Whale’s Tail July 4th Extravaganza at Bajamar

1st Annual Whales Tail July 4th celebration at Bajamar Oceanfront Resort, kilometer 77.5. 
Sunday - July 4th, the day will begin at 10am with an all-Vehicle Parade. Any vehicle—golf carts, trucks, cars, bicycles—can enter the event, and prizes in a variety of categories will be offered for theme-decoration. 

The parade route will meander through and around Bajamar, beginning at 11am, culminating at The Whale’s Tail palapa.


The free fiesta starts at 12pm. There will be artists and crafts booths, a health care booth providing free blood pressure checks on site, Baja Good Life Club booth, as well as other vendor booths. Bands will play throughout the day, and visitors will be treated to a colorful and visual display of folkloric dancing. Plenty of food will be available for purchase, catered by Calafia hotel, and Dona Lupe is offering tastings of their excellent local wines.

A highlight of the July 4th celebration will be the Apple Pie bake-off, sponsored by Hogaza Hogaza! European-style bakery in Ensenada. Although this delectable treat is considered by many to be the all-American dessert, interestingly, Ensenada’s own Valle de Guadalupe has become famed for its own version of apple pie, so it is possible that the competition will get—well, competitive.
