When it comes to celebrating the 4th of July, it only makes sense that we also celebrate the heroes that are in our own communities. This is exactly what Incline Village's 4th of July Weekend Celebration and Parade is all about. With the theme of Local Heroes, the parade brings special appreciation to those who help keep our lives safe, such as veterans, fire fighters, WSO peace officers, healthcare workers, educators and service workers. The weekend highlights fun events for the entire family, like the yummy pancake breakfast or the Firecracker Race, and offers an opportunity to shake hands with those heroes that you would like to show your gratitude. The parade is sure to be a highlight of the weekend, with spectacular floats, a bike parade, classic cars, Tahoe dogs and lots of fire and rescue vehicles for eye candy. This annual event is sponsored by the IVCBA Community and Business Association, Rotary Club of Tahoe-Incline, IVGID and Washoe Sheriff’s Office.
