Bands and the big parade highlight Nevada Day, starting Friday
by Kim Riggs
The Nevada Day parade is not to be missed Saturday. However, there is more than just the parade to keep you entertained.
The Carson High Marching Band on Friday will host a contest to raise money for equipment and other needed items.
If you enjoy all types of music, Richard Doede and the Capital City Community Band will present the 26th annual Nevada Day Concert at the Railroad Museum Saturday. The free concert will feature a variety of music from show tunes to rousing marches.
“We always present a big variety of music so we can try to please almost everyone,” said Doede, founder and director of the band.
