The master-planned community of Summerlin is known for its annual Independence Day parade. This year the parade will be held on July 3 and celebrating our nation’s 245th birthday. The parade and festivities start at 9 a.m.
This year’s event has been arranged as a 30-minute energetic mobile show with dynamic parade floats, giant inflatable balloons and choreographed performances. The Summerlin Council, the community’s nonprofit arm of the Summerlin Community Association, organizer of the parade, stated while this event will be smaller in scale, the pageantry and patriotic spirit of previous parades will be on full display.
Entries will include professionally decorated parade floats with larger-than-life displays of birthday cakes, party hats, an undersea birthday jubilee and other dazzling patriotic celebrations; giant inflatable balloons including a 25-foot birthday cake, a 30-foot American flag and 25-foot Uncle Sam Hat; exciting performances by the Drumbots, Desert Angels gospel choir, the West Las Vegas Arts Center performance ensemble, Danza del Carrizo Native American dancers, Swing It Sisters, Guan Strong lion dancers, stilt walkers and a live DJ spinning beats through the streets. There will also be appearances by beloved cartoon characters, community mascots, princesses and superheroes. And the parade route will be lined end-to-end with American flags
The parade is free and open to the public. Spectators are asked to follow the latest Centers for Disease Control and Prevention COVID-19 guidance for mask-wearing, social distancing and hand washing. Everyone is encouraged to arrive early, wear sunscreen and bring water and hand sanitizer. Because of the smaller scale of this year’s event, there will not be grandstands or announcers’ booths along the route.
Title sponsor is The Howard Hughes Corp./Summerlin. Major sponsors include Centralized Security Services, Downtown Summerlin, Summerlin Hospital Medical Center, Tri Pointe Homes, BrightView Landscape, Par 3, LandCare and LKG Law Firm.
The parade starts at the corner of Hillpointe Road and Hills Center Drive, travels south on Hills Center to Village Center Circle, then turns west on Trails Center Drive ending at the Trails Park.
