Silver City's Virtual Independence Day Parade

Right here July 4th!

Together with the Town of Silver City, Silver City MainStreet, Grant County government, and local schools, the Grant County Chamber of Commerce is again organizing the parade... online!
 The “Virtual Parade” will be a series of videos submitted by organizations (“floats”) and posted on the Museum website, (and also shared widely), to be viewed on July 4th.
 The parade theme is "Salute to America: Coming Through with Flying Colors," recognizing that Silver City and Grant County are still standing strong in the face of COVID-19.
 To enter the parade, organizations are asked to fill out an application by going to the Chamber’s web page at or call (575) 538-3785. 

Each entrant will then develop a short video clip (a minimum of 30 seconds to a maximum of two minutes long) and submit it to the Chamber of Commerce, by emailing  Parade entrants are also asked to provide 10-12 photographs, logos and other information to give video production staff more visual images to choose from. Parade participants who need help developing their video clip will be given an appointment to meet with volunteers on June 26th at Silver High School.

The Museum’s float will be a video mashup of some of our favorite local musicians performing “This Land is Your Land” by Woody Guthrie, with images from our area and maybe even some surprise custom verses!

In the evening, the Town of Silver City is promising a bigger, better, longer, 1.5 hour live fireworks show which will be simulcast with music on KNFT-FM 102.9 and KSCQ-FM 92.9.
