Nevada City hosts Constitution Day parade
September 5, 2013
The 47th annual Constitution Day Parade tops a full weekend of festivities Saturday and Sunday in Nevada City.
The Constitution Day Parade has been a local tradition since 1967 and is reported to be the oldest and largest Constitution observance in western America.
The 2 p.m. Sunday parade features about 100 entries and caps a number of other activities including Revolutionary War living history and re-enactments in Pioneer Park, the annual Gold Country Duck Race on the rapids of Deer Creek and a free outdoor big band concert featuring the Nevada County Concert Band in the downtown historic district.
Celebrants should plan to arrive about an hour before parade time to get a good vantage point along the parade route.
