Truckee Chamber of Commerce is thrilled to announce that plans are underway for the Annual 4th of July parade. This year’s Parade theme is  There’s No Place Like Home”. Truckee's July 4th parade begins at 10:00 a.m. at the west end of town (with staging at Truckee High School), and progresses 1-1/2 miles down Donner Pass Road into historic Truckee, ending around noon.

Lights on the Lake Fireworks is claimed to be the largest synchronized fireworks display west of the Mississippi. Terrific viewpoints are Lakeview Commons/El Dorado Beach in South Lake Tahoe, and Nevada Beach in between Stateline and Zephyr Cove. Area officials advise viewers to plan ahead, consider alternative modes of transportation and take all trash/belongings when the show concludes. The show is shot from three barges anchored near the Stateline area of Lake Tahoe. Loading the barges with more than 3,500 shells is executed by hand and is true muscle-straining work!
