Annual Summerlin Council Patriotic Fourth of July Parade, Southern Nevada’s largest and most colorful parade is back in full force; and the Las Vegas Valley is invited to attend and celebrate in Summerlin.
This is the 28 year of the parade and it is first full-scale parade since the pandemic started in 2020. The parade for this year is going to be the biggest and best. There are more than 70 entries, including representation from four local professional sports teams, including the Vegas Golden Knights, Las Vegas Aces, Las Vegas Aviators and, new this year, the Las Vegas Raiders — represented by a 30-foot Raiders-branded giant inflatable balloon in the shape of a football 25 giant inflatable parade balloons. There will also be veteran and military organizations, both patriotic and pop culture-themed floats, and performing groups.
As in other years The Smith King Team will be part of the parade thru The Rotary Organization. We will be wrangling the balloons; if you see us please say hi.
There is a new float this year, “The Magic of Encanto,” joining many popular and patriotic-themed entries, including “A Salute to the Military,” honoring the service men and women from Nellis and Creech Air Force bases; “America Sings!” featuring the Desert Angels gospel choir; “America Standing Tall” featuring a 15-foot Miss Stars and Stripes towering high above the crowd; “A Very Vegas Birthday” with a special appearance by Elvis; and “Dancing in the Street” by the Contemporary West Dance Theatre ARTSWORK Pro.
The other popular performing groups include Danza Del Carrizo Native American performing group, Palo Verde High School Marching Band, Nevada Latino Arts and Culture Association; and The Swing It! Girls. Veterans and military organizations will be represented by the Marine Corps League, American Legion, Forgotten Not Gone and the Southern Nevada Military Vehicle Association.
Also this year we will see other favorites: “The Fourth Awakens,” featuring the Neon City Garrison Star Wars costuming club; “Mario Karts on Parade,” featuring Mario and Luigi; and “Frozen Fun,” featuring Elsa and Anna.
Over 2,500 people most likely will participate in the parade, and more than 500 volunteers from dozens of local schools and community groups will be part of the parade operations. Over 20,000 cubic feet of helium will be used for 25 giant Inflatables.
Attendance along the parade route is expected to top 50,000 people, so if you want a front row view come early and do not forget to bring plenty of water for your entire family – plus wear sunscreen.
