Support July 4 festivities

Plans are well underway for a July 4 celebration that promises to be one of the finest we’ve ever had. The day starts with the parade, this year in Nevada City at 11 a.m.

The fun continues with an afternoon and evening celebration (beginning at 3 p.m.) under the pines at the Nevada County Fairgrounds, with lots of food and entertainment that is capped by the 9:30 p.m. aerial fireworks spectacular. The fireworks show provides an exciting and safe alternative to the at-home fireworks that cause concern and debate in a community that is seeking safety from fire danger.

To assist with funding of our community parade, the Fourth of July Committee is seeking donations from businesses and organizations. The cost of producing the parade is over $3,000 and anyone donating will be acknowledged in media releases. Those wanting to make a donation to sponsor a band will have their names on banners placed on the parade route.

Donations can be made to the Fourth of July Committee and mailed or dropped off at the Grass Valley or Nevada City chambers of commerce.

We invite the entire community to come out on July 4, take in the parade, fairgrounds, festivities and fireworks and enjoy a good, old-fashioned, patriotic celebration here in Grass Valley and Nevada City.
