Local Hereos Celebration Wrap Up

July 9, 2024 | Kristin Derrin

What an incredible three days of Local Heroes 4th of July Celebrations! We hope everyone enjoyed all the great community events. The Local Heroes Parade and Community Fair was a great success!

We want to thank all our volunteers; we couldn’t have done it without you. Thank you to Tiffany Clements (WCSO), who organized all the volunteers for decorating the parade route! It looked great! 

Thank you to the North Lake Tahoe Fire Protection District for the Pancake Breakfast and flag-raising to kick off the three-day event. Also, thank you for kindly pulling the IVCBA ‘Future Local Heroes’ Float in the parade; there were a lot of happy kiddos! 

Thank you to the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office for the ‘Meet & Greet’ at the Community Fair and for bringing the horses!  

Thank you to TK for organizing the Kid’s Bike Parade and the Community Fair Kids Olympics! 

Thank you to Susie Scoops for supplying the ice cream at the Community Fair and hosting the famous Ice Cream eating contest.

Thank you to Highlander Pride for the Community Fair BBQ and the Highland Pride Basketball Tournament. 
Thank you to the Incline Tahoe Foundation for a very successful Summerfest! 
Thank you to the Rotary Club of Tahoe-Incline and the IVCB Veterans Club for the pancake breakfasts, flag retirement ceremony, and all you do for the Local Heroes Celebration. 

Thank you to Tocatta for the Red, White, and Tahoe Blue – Tribute to America. 
Thank you to the Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe Resort and Spa for the free 4th of July BBQ. 
Thank you to Travel North Tahoe Nevada for your generous sponsorship. 

And, of course, thank you to Red, White, and Tahoe Blue II for bringing back the fireworks. That was an incredible firework show! A perfect way to end a successful 3-day Celebration! 

It takes a village to bring about such a successful event. So many people came together to create 3 days of celebration. A big appreciation to Julie Malkin-Manning with IVCBA for the incredible event organization!
