4th of July Celebration at the Nevada County Fairgrounds
Join the Grass Valley Downtown Association and The Grass Valley and Nevada City Chambers of Commerce in celebrating the 4th of July! The celebration will kick off at the top of Broad Street with the 4th of July Parade at 2:00 PM with a fantastic mix of floats, dancers and even The Ophir Prison Marching Band.
We are proud to introduce Madelyn Helling as this year’s Grand Marshall! Namesake for the Nevada County Library, Madelyn has been an integral part of our community, wearing many hats for many years. She was the County Librarian for 17 years, sat in several board seats including the Nevada County Arts Council, League of Women Voters, and the American Association of University Women. She has received many Citizen of the Year Awards from the Nevada County Historical Society, and the Nevada County Board of Realtors. She volunteered for the Nevada City Chamber of Commerce for 20 years, earning the Nevada City Chamber of Commerce Kilroy Award. She is currently the Director of the Nevada County Narrow Gauge Railroad Museum and also won the University Women’s Community Service Award- and the list goes on. Let’s just say, she is well deserving of this honor!
After the parade, head on out the fairgrounds and immerse yourself in tradition with a spectacular fireworks display, Treat Street goodies, entertainment for the kids and all your friends and neighbors. Entertainment for everyone at the Pine Tree Stage includes The Tommyknocker Cloggers, The Dyin’ Breed, Petting Zoo Street Drummers and Jamal Walker and Loose Change.
