The Summerlin Council, organizer of the annual Summerlin Patriotic Parade that typically draws more than 40,000 parade-goers and now in its 26th year, will transition the parade to a virtual event this year.

 

The streamed Patriotic Parade will debut on July 4 at 9 a.m.  According to Lezlie Barnson-DeNardin, executive director of The Summerlin Council, the virtual parade will still include the small-town spirit and big-city pageantry of the annual parade, but in a different format.

 

“We plan to include a number of the same community groups and organizations that participate in the parade, but in a virtual way,” said Barnson-DeNardin. “As participants and details are confirmed, we will release information to get the community excited about spending the morning of July 4 with us – online, of course.”

 

The Summerlin Council will post updates and detailed information about how to tune in to the virtual parade at summerlinpatrioticparade.com.
