The annual 4th of July South Lake Tahoe Parade will take over the holiday morning. The theme of this year’s parade is “Tahoe Strong, A Salute to Our Heroes.” The celebration is not only for Independence day but also to honor local heroes.
The festivities will begin at 10 am with a military flyover by the 152nd Airlift Wing, The High Rollers, which are part of the Nevada Air National Guard. They will fly over the Lakeview Commons area. Then, floats, decorated vehicles, and live music will follow.
The best places to view the parade are the Grand Stand Area at Lakeview Commons, The County Library, South Tahoe Middle School, Rite Aid Parking Lot, LTUSD Bus Garage, or along Hwy 50 between Ski Run Blvd. and Al Tahoe Blvd.
All parade entries will be judged, and awards will be given for several categories. Come out to see who will win Best Float Entry, Best Walking Entry, Best Youth Entry, Best Decorated Vehicle(s), and the History & Heritage Award.
The parade will wind its way through town, starting on Ski Run Blvd. to Al Tahoe Blvd. along Hwy 50. Then it will travel up Al Tahoe Blvd. and end at Bijou Community Park. Click here to view a map of the route.
