The 52nd Annual Constitution Day Parade in Nevada City was a hit once again. Crowds lined both sides of Broad Street in anticipation of the community floats, bands, and special appearances. Some of the crowd favorites are the Shiner Groups from Sacramento including a team of seven go-carts that performed a number of intricate designs and patterns as they wound their way down the parade route. Another crowd favorite is the Marching Presidents. This a year Bill Sargent, a descendant of Aaron Sargent, was invited to march with the presidents.
