|The South Lake Tahoe 2015 4th of July Parade|
Despite the fact that the parade ran almost half the length of town from Rufus Allen Boulevard all the way to the Y, there was a considerable crowd of tourists lining highway 50 to watch the parade pass Lakeview Commons and El Dorado beach.

I spoke with +JoAnn Conner of Golden Bear Events, organizer of the parade. "This is the 4th annual South Lake Tahoe 4th of July parade assembling by the parks and recreation and we're going to proceed down Highway 50. We have as our grand marshal John Felis, a US Marine Corps veteran of World War II. We have every branch of the services represented here, Air Force, Marines, Army, Coast Guard and Navy and we also have veterans of everything from WWII to the Korean war to Vietnam all the way up to Afghanistan and Iraq. They're all here as well as a lot of businesses and vintage vehicles that are out here supporting this parade.
