Old Fashioned July 4th of July Parade

Parade begins at 11:00 a.m.

The patriotism of Ely, Nevada shows through in its annual Fourth of July Parade.

The main street, Highway 50, is closed off to traffic and at 11 a.m. the fun begins. The parade begins with the American and Nevada state flags displayed by The Pony Express horseback riders. Following the flags, the Grand Marshall waves to everyone. 

After the parade has ended, there will be games, face painting, and booths at Broadbent Park, where the parade began. The streets are always crowded at this once a year event, so if you want a great view of the parade, and the possibility of catching candy or Frisbees, get there early.  Many barbeques will be planned while waiting for the parade to begin, so be prepared!
