Plans are underway for another exciting 4th of July parade — the quintessential display of small-town Americana. This festive and fun-filled event is always a favorite and a true Truckee tradition.
Truckee’s July 4th parade begins at 10 a.m. at the corner of 89S and Donner Pass Road, and progresses 1-1/4 miles down Donner Pass Road into historic Truckee, ending at the corner of Bridge and Church Street around noon.
This year’s parade theme of “Live-Work-Play Truckee!” celebrates everyone in our community that enjoys life in the mountains every day or when visiting.
The Parade is produced by the Truckee Donner Chamber of Commerce in partnership with the Town of Truckee with logistical support by Big Blue Adventure, LLC.
