The 4th of July is Almost Here!
It’s that time again when locals and visitors alike unplug and plug-in to celebrate our freedom in so many festive ways. To help you plan where to go and what to see during our forthcoming Fourth of July holiday in Truckee and Lake Tahoe, we’ve sorted out the specifics for you and yours to enjoy throughout the High Sierra.
Whether you come for the holiday, stay for the week, or have an extended vacation in mind, our communities are ready to share all that’s great about living in our mountain towns.

Wednesday, July 3rd
7:00 PM – 10:00 PM
Fireworks: 9:30 PM
Make it a full day of fun in the sun and on the sand before the 4th of July as King Beach presents its 40th annual July 3rd Fireworks & Beach Party.
The official celebration begins at 7:00 p.m. and as parking is limited, we suggest you make plans to hit the beach with your blanket and picnic basket sooner than later on the 3rd of July. Or, enjoy food and beverage provided by local vendors, sip some fine wine or a cold beer while the party is getting underway, and enjoy the music while you wait for the fireworks that are set-off around 9:30 p.m.
If you feel like spoiling the family, click into their website and reserve your seats for $25 per person. The funds help support all the festivities this year, and in years to come.
