[ARCHIVED] Celebrate Our Small Town Atmosphere with the July 4 Parade and Block Party

July 4 parade equine entry

Come out for one of our community’s favorite events: the July 4 parade and, this year, block party on Maine Street! Hosted by the City of Fallon, Fallon Chamber of Commerce and Churchill County Parks & Recreation, this annual celebration is a community-wide event with plenty of activities for families.

Start with the parade at 10 a.m. which follows the “usual” route: starting on Taylor Street at the middle school, north on Taylor to A Street, east on A Street to Ada Street, south on Ada Street to Williams Avenue, east on Williams Avenue to Maine Street, south on Maine Street to the middle school. Entries for floats will be accepted online through June 24. 

Following the parade, stay for the block party on Maine Street between Williams Avenue and Stillwater Ave. The street will be blocked off until 2 p.m. for pedestrians and families to enjoy bed races, water games, a children’s bike parade and the fire truck sprinklers. Have lunch at food trucks and shop at vendor booths. Many downtown businesses will be open and the Fallon Theatre will be showing cartoon “shorts” if you need a break from the heat.

Parade and block party sponsors include Fitness for $10, Big R, New Millennium, JOIN, Banner Churchill Community Hospital, Financial Horizons Credit Union, American Legion, Walker Lake Disposal, Edward Jones, Fallon Glass and Sign, Tedford Tire & Auto, Kent’s Supply Center, K.D. Automotive, The Depot and Class One Motorsports.

A pie making contest will be held as part of the celebrations, so bake those pies and bring them to His Inspirations, 200 South Maine Street, on July 2 by 2 p.m. for judging. Winners announced at the block party.

To enter a float, sign up for a bed race team or be a vendor at the block party, please sign-up online at under “Announcements” or contact Lucy at the Fallon Chamber of Commerce at (775)423-2544.
