The United States’ Constitution was signed by the Constitutional Convention in the year of 1787 and since then, this day has been celebrated to honor the Forefathers and the sacrifices they bore for the future generations of the country.
Constitution Day marks the ratification of the Constitution of the United States of America.
On the 17th of September, people of the United States of America come together and celebrate this day with pomp and joy.
People of all age groups come together and contribute to this event in any capacity that they can.
The Constitution Day Parade in Nevada started off in 1967 and has been conducted regularly ever since.
The American Civil War Association members contribute to the parade by ‘bringing back the past’. Many members indulge in re-enactments while others relay their experiences verbally.
Since this day is important and is a federal holiday, people are requested to report early to get a good view of the event. Tourists or those people coming from different states are advised to make prior accommodation arrangements.
For those who may want to attend the event, the Nevada City Chamber of Commerce is a good resource to help you figure out important details of your stay/visit. They are located at 132 Main Street, Nevada City, 95959.
