The 51st Annual Constitution Day Parade tops a weekend of festivities Sept. 9 & 10, 2017 in this historic California Gold Rush town. Nevada City’s Constitution Day Parade has been a local tradition since 1967 and is reported to be the oldest and largest Constitution observance in western America.
The 2 p.m. Sunday parade features more than 100 entries and culminates other activities including Revolutionary War Living History in Pioneer Park, the Gold Country Duck Race on Deer Creek.
The parade through the downtown historic district includes marching bands, floats, antique autos, equestrians, politicians and the perennial crowd favorites the Famous Marching Presidents of Nevada City, a humorous but reverent group that portrays each U.S. president.
