The annual Damboree Parade in Boulder City is famous around the state for being the biggest and, of course, the best, Independence Day parade. As such, the various entries are always highly anticipated by the spectators who also hail from all over the state, but especially here in Clark County. This year’s parade had approximately 80 entries, and they were warmly greeted by a happy crowd who enjoyed the festivities despite record temperatures in Southern Nevada.

The Grand Marshal of the parade this year was Alexis “Lexi” Lagan, Boulder City’s own two-time Olympian. She came back to her hometown for a few days of small town celebration before she travels to Paris for the 2024 Summer Olympics, which begin later this month.

In addition to sportswoman Lexi, the following local athletes and sports groups participated in the parade as well:

  • Boulder BMX
  • Boulder City Bass Club
  • Boulder City High School Cheerleaders
  • Boulder City High School Football Team
  • Boulder City High School Rodeo Team
  • Boulder City Little League All Star Teams
  • Boulder City Thunder Softball Team
  • Eldorado Cowboys
  • Elton and Madeleine Garrett Junior High School Cheerleaders
  • Larry Miller Racing
  • Nevada Striper Club
  • Renegade Racing

As it is an election year, there were several politicians entered in the parade. They included the following current office holders, incumbents or challengers:

  • Denise Ashurst, candidate for Boulder City City Council (challenger)
  • Sam Brown, candidate for United States Senate (challenger)
  • Aaron Ford, Nevada State Attorney General (current officeholder)
  • Matt Fox, candidate for Boulder City City Council (incumbent)
  • Lynn Goya, Clark County Nevada Clerk (current officeholder)

  • Colonel Mark Robertson, candidate for United States House of Representatives (District 1) (challenger)
  • Jacky Rosen, candidate United States Senator (incumbent)
  • Dina Titus, candidate for United States House of Representatives (District 1) (incumbent)

The “water section” of the parade proved to be the most popular part of this Boulder City tradition with lots of children and adults taking turns drenching one another with water guns. A lot of local businesses, churches, and civic groups participated in this annual tradition. They included:

  • BC Bass Tackle

The fun and activities continue today at Veterans Memorial Park beginning at 4:00PM. The cost is $20 per vehicle. There will be games, food vendors, beer booth, and music by DJ Mike Pacini. No personal fireworks are allowed at the park. The wonderful fireworks show begins at 9:00PM.
