Nevada City News and Events

Constitution Weekend in Nevada City Sept 8 & 9
The 46th Annual Constitution Day Parade tops a weekend of festivities Sept. 8-9, 2012 in Nevada City!
The 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 Civil War battle reenactments in Pioneer Park, the Gold Country Duck Race on Deer Creek and a free outdoor big band concert in the downtown historic district.
The parade through the downtown historic district includes marching bands, floats, antique autos, equestrians, politicians and perennial crowd favorites such as the Ophir Prison Marching Kazoo Band and the Famous Marching Presidents of Nevada City, a humorous but reverent group that portrays each U.S. president.
Celebrants should plan to arrive about an hour before parade time to get a good vantage point along the parade route.
Members of the American Civil War Association offer living history and battle reenactments at 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. Saturday and at 11 a.m. Sunday in Pioneer Park. More than 200 military and settler reenactors are expected to take part.
