Damboree Returns to BC


BOULDER CITY - The Damboree Committee, a local 501(c)(3), is making a strong comeback after a year off due to COVID-19. Volunteers are planning two days of celebration this year. Those interested in entering a float or participating on the parade route must apply by June 22; the application can be found on Entries cost $15.00.

The parade is traditionally held on Saturday, July 3 when July 4 falls on a Sunday, but the fireworks will be on Independence Day. “We are thrilled to hold this very special event again this year,” said Dawn Green, Damboree’s organizer. “Damboree holds a special place in the hearts of those who call Boulder City home, as well as those who come from miles around for this wonderful event.” 

The Rotary Club of Boulder City will hold the annual Pancake Breakfast on July 3 from 7 a.m. – 9 a.m. in Bicentennial Park, 1100 Colorado St. The Damboree Parade starts at 9:00 a.m. with the route beginning on Colorado Street and continuing down Nevada Highway to 5th Street and on to Broadbent Memorial Park. The parade’s “water zone” runs from Avenue A to Avenue B and Avenue B to the end of the parade at 6th Street. This is the only location along the route where water play will be allowed. WATER BALLOONS ARE PROHIBITED.

Festivities will continue on Sunday, July 4, 2021 at Veteran's Memorial Park, 1650 Buchanan Blvd. from 4 p.m. to 11 p.m.  Entry is $10 per vehicle. Food, music and games will be available. The fireworks show begins at 9 p.m. “We appreciate the volunteers who work with non-profit organizations like the Damboree Committee, providing great events for residents and visitors alike each year,” said acting City Manager Michael Mays. 

Boulder City Police and Fire staff remind residents that the Eldorado Valley Dry Lake Bed Recreation Area is closed to the public every year from July 3 until July 5. The closure of the recreation area is done to prevent gatherings, littering and degradation that has occurred there in the past.  The Dry Lake Bed was the site of parties that left the site strewn with trash and human waste. The large crowds, the presence of alcohol and the use of illegal fireworks created public safety concerns and emergency response challenges for City police and fire departments, prompting the City Council in 2014 to approve Resolution 6124, closing the recreation area annually July 3-5.
