Entries needed for South Lake Tahoe July 4 parade

Entries are needed for the 2018 Fourth of July parade in South Lake Tahoe.

The Fourth of July parade will return to South Lake Tahoe with an all new route, and the city is looking for participants.

This year's parade will be staged at Ski Run Boulevard and head west on U.S. 50 to Al Tahoe Boulevard, eventually ending at Bijou Community Park.

Safety officials feel the route will be safer than last year's parade, which ran from down by the Y to Al Tahoe.

This year's parade starts at 10 a.m.

Individuals, businesses, sports groups, philanthropy groups, schools and others are invited to participate and, according to the city, float entries are highly encouraged.

An application is required to participate, although there is no entry fee. The application is intended to assist in the planning and execution of the parade. Applications are available at http://www.cityofslt.us/4thofJulyParade. They are due by June 15.
