Truckee Fourth of July Parade rolls through downtown
July 7, 2014
Truckee's Fourth of July Parade is touted as the quintessential display of small town Americana.
Crowds of festive spectators lined the streets of downtown Truckee for the annual parade on Friday, cheering and waving as decorative floats rolled slowly through the mass of patriotic supporters.
As always, the Firecracker Mile run preceded the parade, starting across the street from US Bank and finishing in downtown Truckee. This year's run was more popular than ever, featuring 630 participants.
Andrew Clusserath, 16, of Rocklin raced to victory with a time of 4:19.7, while Truckee's Noah Oberriter was the top local with a fifth-place finish in 4:25.3. Anja Gruber of Truckee placed first among woman, posting a time of 5:07.4.
