The Second Annual Fourth of July Parade and Event
The parade will feature veterans and active military personnel. Two of our local Gold Star Moms will have cars in the parade in remembrance of their sons lost in battle, Sgt. Timothy Smith and Spec. Garrett Fant. There is no charge for veterans or active duty military to be in the parade, but they need to register through the parade producer, Golden Bear Events. Businesses, service clubs, and families may also be in the parade.
This year’s event is sponsored this year by the American Legion Post No. 795 in South Lake Tahoe. The parade will stage in the parking lot of Big 5 at the “Y,” and begin traveling east at 10 a.m. July 4. The parade will conclude at the American Legion Post No. 795 by 11 a.m.
A celebration will be held at the legion from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. A short ceremony will be held honoring veterans. Music, food, vendors and fun will be available until mid-afternoon. Featured music will be performed by members of the renowned South Tahoe High School Blue Ribbon Choir, led by Mr. Paul Kushner. Vendors include accomplished author Elizabeth Rymer Patterson, who will be available to sign her books in the Bonners Fairy series.
