Streets close at noon to accommodate the Parade.

There is no cost to watch the parade, but an unwrapped toy for Toys for Tots is welcome.

2019 Grand Marshal
J Stirling, Hangtown Marshals


All year long, J Stirling and his band of brothers (and sisters) who make up the Hangtown Marshals bring our historic past to life at events and random walkabouts downtown.  Our community is richer for the color and history that is brought to life by this group.  Since 1988, the fearless leader of this band has been J Stirling.  We honor J. with the title of Grand Marshal in gratitude for all that he has given to Placerville for over 31 years.
