When it comes to celebrating the 4th of July in North Lake Tahoe it only makes sense that we celebrate the heroes in our own community. This is exactly what Incline Village’s 4th of July Celebration is all about!

The Local Heroes Parade is a highlight of the weekend, with spectacular floats, a bike parade, classic cars, Tahoe dogs, and lots of fire and rescue vehicles. The theme brings special appreciation to those who help keep our lives safe, such as veterans, firefighters, Washoe County Sherrif Office peace officers, healthcare workers, educators, and service workers. Our 2023 Parade Grand Marshall is MacAvoy Layne – also known as The Ghost of Twain.

The multi-day Local Heroes Celebration includes events for the entire community including the popular annual pancake breakfasts hosted by North Lake Tahoe Fire Protection District and the IVCB Veterans Club, the Local Heroes Parade led by IVGID Kid’s Bike Parade and Community Fair and Washoe County Sheriff Office Meet & Greet on the Village Green and a new event at Aspen Grove, The Backyard BBQ being hosted by Highlander Pride. There’s also the annual TOCCATA concert!

The Incline Village Crystal Bay July 4th Drone SkyShow returns, bigger and brighter than before!
