BOULDER CITY - One of Southern Nevada’s favorite traditions is celebrating a big milestone: Tuesday, July 4, 2022 is the 75th annual Damboree Parade and Fireworks Celebration in Boulder City! The parade Grand Marshal for 2023 is the Southern Nevada State Veterans Home, a fitting salute to the men and women who served our nation.
As Grand Marshal, the veterans will be one of the first groups on the parade route. “We have active duty veterans coming from Nellis Air Force Base to help us get our bus and van decorated,” said Amanda Kehrer, coordinator for the Veterans Home. “Our residents and staff are thrilled to be recognized in such a public way, especially on a day that carries so much importance to our veterans and citizens alike.”

The route begins at Colorado Street and continues south on Nevada Way; turns left on 5th Street and finishes in Broadbent Memorial Park. WATER TRUCKS AND WATER BALLOONS ARE PROHIBITED. Various organizations and vendors will be selling food and beverages in Broadbent Park.
