LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — America’s Birthday Party Parade: A Summerlin Community Celebration is taking place at 9 a.m. July 3.

This year’s event has been reimagined as a 30-minute energetic mobile show incorporating dynamic parade floats, giant inflatable balloons and choreographed performances. According to parade organizers, while this event will be smaller in scale, the pageantry and patriotic spirit of previous parades will be on full display.

Spectators are asked to follow the latest CDC COVID-19 guidance for mask wearing, social distancing and hand washing.
