The Parade commences at 10 am and follows the route to Condon Park. The Mill Street 4th of July Celebration runs from 5-9 pm with dancing, food vendors, and special beverage offerings. Round out the evening by viewing the fireworks display, shot from a location near the Dorsey Drive Interchange around 9:30 pm.   

 If you are looking to beat the heat, consider visiting one of Nevada County’s many lakes as an alternative to the river. Warm temperatures over the weekend are likely to send more high-elevation snowmelt downstream, creating dangerous conditions for even the most seasoned river-goer. Information about a number of local lakes and reservoirs that are owned and operated by Nevada Irrigation District can be found here.  

Stay safe and have a wonderful weekend Nevada County!
