The City of South Lake Tahoe will be hosting a 50th Anniversary Parade on Saturday, September 19, 2015. The response to the parade has been outstanding and the City has received more than 85 entries and over 300 walkers in the parade.
The parade route has changed and will begin at 10:00 am at the 'Y' and will proceed East on Highway 50, turn right onto Al Tahoe Blvd. and end at Bijou Community Park where the city will officially open and dedicate the Bijou Bike Park with a “Party at the Park.” We anticipate the parade to conclude at Bijou Community Park at 11:30am.
