Letter to the Editor: Truckee July 4 parade was boring

I am a nine-year resident of Truckee and have been attending the Truckee Fourth of July Parade consistently throughout these years. The parade hasnand#8217;t been really good for a few years now, but this year was the worst I have witnessed.

There were no patriotic entries and few of what I would call traditional float-type entries. What was the theme again? Most of the entries were vehicles barely decorated and loaded down with people squirting water guns. Even the marching entries were sloppy.

One word to the paradeand#8217;s promoters: boring.
