South Lake Tahoe seeks parade entries for Fourth of July

Staff Report

SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. — The city of South Lake Tahoe is bringing back the Fourth of July Parade for 2022. The COVID-19 pandemic impacted many community events, the parade being one, which resulted in a 2-year hiatus. In addition to bringing back the parade this year, the city has created a theme for the event: “Tahoe Strong, A Salute to Our Heroes.”

Also new this year are “The Best of the Parade Awards.” A judging panel will score all parade entries, and trophies will be awarded for the following categories:

— Best Float Entry

— Best Walking Entry

— Best Youth Entry

— Best Decorated Vehicle(s)

— History & Heritage Award

Entries will be judged on the use of parade theme, overall appearance, originality and creativity, use of music/sound, and crowd appeal.

Individuals, businesses, sports groups, philanthropy groups, schools, and others are all invited to participate. Float entries are highly encouraged.
