Join us for a truly unique experience, the July 4th parade and block party on Maine Street, a beloved event in our community. This celebration of Independence Day, sponsored by the City of Fallon, the Fallon Chamber of Commerce, and Churchill County Parks and Recreation, is a testament to our small-town spirit. It's not just a parade, it's a community-wide event with a host of activities designed for families to enjoy. 

Be a part of the action as the parade kicks off at 10 a.m. The route, starting on Taylor Street at the Middle School and winding its way through the heart of our town, is a testament to our community's spirit. Don't miss the chance to showcase your creativity with a float entry, accepted online through Friday, June 28, at the FallonChamber.com website.

Floats should be created around the theme “Fallon Forward” and focus on the idea from the Chamber of “empowering the next generation by igniting passion in our newest and younger generation of business owners, ranchers, workers, and volunteers. We will encourage our future leaders to take the torch and step in to care for Fallon as we move into the future while preserving and honoring the past that has made Fallon great. 

Following the parade, stay on Maine Street for the block party between Williams Avenue and Stillwater Avenue. The street will be blocked off until 2 p.m. for pedestrians and families to enjoy bed races, water games, children’s activities, and the fire truck sprinklers. Have lunch at food trucks and shop at vendor booths. Many downtown businesses will be open and ready to serve you.

Before the event, there will be a pie-baking contest, with judging on June 29 at the Cottage School. The winner gets Bragging Rights and a beautiful pie dish. More details can be found on the Chamber website and social media.

There will also be a window decorating contest, with cash prizes for the winners. “We would love for all our businesses to show their spirit of the holiday and decorate,” said Chamber Executive Director Lucy Carnahan. To be qualified, windows must be decorated and signed up through the website by June 29. Judges will tour those businesses after the deadline. 

For more information or to get involved, call the Chamber at 775-423-2544 or Robyn Jordan at Parks & Rec at 775-423-7733.
