The annual parade rotates between Grass Valley and Nevada City and is co-sponsored by both cities, the chambers of commerce, and the Grass Valley Downtown Association.
Following a short break after the parade, people gathered at the Nevada County Fairgrounds for late afternoon festivities and fireworks after sunset.
