Truckee’s July 4th parade was a smashing success. The streets were lined with crowds of people enjoying this hometown tradition. This year’s parade theme was #TruckeeMoments, sharing all that we love about Truckee through social media.
The parade is a true showing of Truckee’s community spirit, small town charm, and as always is a real slice of Americana.
Parade entries were judged in five different categories: Commercial, Open, Youth Group, Non-Profit, and Classic Auto. Entries are judged on organization of entry, public’s response, quality of preparation, and effort involved. Awards given for first place winners in all categories:
BEST IN SHOW:
Squaw Valley / Alpine Meadows
Truckee River Drill Team
Truckee Pop Warner
Some Gave All – Joey Graves Foundation / The Veterans Guest House
Truckee’s Own Classic Vehicles & Fine Rides
