South Lake Tahoe, CA- The 4th of July Parade is back in South Lake Tahoe this year it will make history.
Live music, incredible dancers, a 20-foot-tall eagle balloon, and more will make their way down US 50 starting at 10:00 AM on Independence Day.
“This is going to be an exciting year for the parade in South Lake Tahoe,” said Chris Fiore, Communications Manager for the City, “This year we’ve found plenty of new ways to celebrate our nation's independence and honor our veterans!”
News 4 Morning Meteorologist Steve Bender will emcee the parade from the grandstand at Champions Plaza as thousands of parade participants look on.
“Steve is a lot of fun to watch in the mornings on News 4, and we know in his off time he enjoys everything Lake Tahoe has to offer,” said Fiore, “We are excited to welcome him to the parade and have him bring his energy to help us celebrate here in South Lake Tahoe.”
Also, new this year, a Food Truck Park will end the parade at Bijou Park! Food vendors of all kinds will be there serving up delicious dishes to everyone who stops by. We’ll have tacos, Mediterranean food, and all sorts of desserts. The best part, every food truck will donate a portion of their proceeds to the Tahoe Chapter of the American Legion.
“This year we wanted to offer a variety of options to folks who will get a little hungry once the parade is over,” Fiore said, “We also wanted to make sure we were still supporting our local veterans and are thrilled with the generosity of the people in our area.”
The American Legion has also started a Go Fund Me Page, and we are asking the community to make donations by clicking here.
The deadline for applications to be a part of the parade has been extended through June 21st! If you want to be a part of the parade or food truck park click here.
