South Lake Tahoe 4th of July Parade

If you are looking for something to do in South Lake Tahoe this Fourth of July before hitting the beach parties in Zephyr Cove, we highly recommend checking out the parade. Stay at an Adventure Stays property to be near the action!

Parade Details

The South Lake Tahoe parade will begin at 9:00 AM, starting on Ski Run Blvd & Tamarack Ave. It will move north to Highway 50, then west to Al Tahoe Blvd. The parade will conclude at Bijou Community Park.

This year's theme is "Stars and Stripes" and will recognize the service of first responders, military personnel, and local community leaders. There will be a flyover, fantastic people-watching, and spectacular vibes! Don't forget to wear your red, white, and blue!!!

The following locations are recommended for a premium viewing experience. Get there early to make sure you have a spot!

  • Grand Stand Area at Lakeview Commons
  • We personally recommend you find a spot on Harrison Avenue (get some 'za at Slice of Sierra while you're at it) and hang out at one of the many patios nearby.
