Each year, historic Virginia City hosts an Independence Day celebration complete with a parade, live concert, waving flags, candy throwing, and a fireworks display.

This year, the tradition continues Tuesday, July 4. Revelers are encouraged to come early and enjoy the small-town atmosphere. Cool off with ice cream shops, enjoy a refreshing beverage at more than 10 saloons and bars, or take advantage of air conditioning inside one of the town’s 13 museums depicting its rich history.

Kicking off at noon, the Fourth of July parade is the town’s largest parade of the year, marching down C Street. At 6 p.m. the David John and the Second Amendment Concert takes place in the Bucket of Blood parking lot. After dusk, the fireworks display shoots off from below the Silverland Inn & Suites.
