Memorial Day Events
Provide Opportunities to Remember


As a City with a military heritage and gratitude in our hearts for the sacrifice of service, the City provides two heartwarming events for residents to enjoy. The morning begins with a parade of roaring motorcycles with furling flags waving in the wind. Coordinated by West Coast Thunder, the parade will begin at Frederick St. and Sunnymead Blvd. at approximately 9:30 a.m. For more information about the West Coast Thunder Bike Run/ Parade, visit www.westcoastthunder.com. 

In the afternoon, the annual ceremony at the Veterans Memorial at 2:00 p.m. provides a place for the community to unify to remember those who lost their lives in service to our country, as well as the families left behind. With a dynamic featured speaker, guest student speaker, special music and presentations, and a post event reception, the 2016 Memorial Day Ceremony will be a wonderful way for Moreno Valley families to honor the fallen. Event details including speakers and participating groups are available online.
America United

America United is the theme for the 2016 July 4th festivities in Moreno Valley. The spectacular events of the day would not be possible without the generosity of our sponsors. The City of Moreno Valley would like to thank the following sponsors that help bring the best darn July 4th event in the region to Moreno Valley.

Designs must be submitted via e-mail to recreation@moval.org or in person at the Conference & Recreation Center, 14075 Frederick Street, no later than May 17th.

Fire Resistant Landscaping

Does your home have fire prone landscaping? If there was a fire, would your landscaping increase the possibility of fire damage or even hinder the activities of firefighters?  There are many landscaping techniques that create a semi-fireproof zone or defensible space around homes.  A fire safe landscape isn't necessarily the same thing as a well-maintained yard. A fire safe landscape uses fire resistant plants that are strategically planted to resist the spread of fire to your home. The good news is that you don't need a lot of money to make your landscape fire safe. And you will find that a fire safe landscape can increase your property value and conserve water while beautifying your home.
