4th of July celebrations in North Lake Tahoe - 2018

There are many opportunities to celebrate Independence Day in North Lake Tahoe.  Those with abundant energy can fit in more than one event on this action packed holiday.

One of the most popular ways to begin the day is in Truckee. The Firecracker Mile run begins at 9am, followed by the old-fashioned annual parade from the high school through historic downtown Truckee. The road will be closed to traffic until the end of the parade, so come early to park, or take advantage of the free shuttle service provided. Then find your prime location to watch the many colorful and interesting floats and groups. This is a Truckee tradition and fun for the whole family. Fireworks will go off at Donner Lake at 9:30 pm if you decide to stay in town.   http://chamber.truckee.com/events/details/truckee-4th-of-july-parade-1058

Tahoe City will celebrate the city's 74th annual Fireworks show at 9:30pm. Begin here on Commons Beach, with a fun-filled day of live music, games and a food and beer garden. You can find a great spot that evening at the edge of the lake, where the dazzling fireworks will feel like they are right over you...an amazing sight to see. http://www.visittahoecity.org/
