    What a sad, pathetic so-called parade. There is nothing exciting and is the same old thing year after year. It is really sad when the highlight of the parade is the Ebbetts Pass Fire District which you can see on Hwy 4 everyday.

      The Arnold Independence Day Parade is a wonderful tradition. If I may, I would like to suggest that if you don't care for the parade or are not impressed by the entries, you can step it up around March 2020, assemble a group (like I plan to do for next year) or get an act together for yourself, practice, and then submit an entry for 2020. Wallowing and whining is a waste (and is wack).

          Great question. It appears Linda Baker was the Chairperson. Here's this year's parade contact information in case you'd like to see about entering next year.

          We look forward to your entry next year!

        You don't get it, the parade is a lost cause. There is nothing original about it and who wants to see a bunch of old Geezers walking in the middle of Hwy 4.

            I get it too, it's all about our Independence. Even though I did not go, I think it's
            a great tradition that would be extremely sad if it ever ends. Some people like
            the above person who is, a whiner, grouchy, or doesn't give a damn about our
            Independence or how lucky we truly are. We will always have the kind of
            person he is, one who would never fight for their rights, he would probably
            cower behind a woman who would fight for her independence, for her right to
            free speech or any other God given right to be free and be happy. That's
            just the way some people are, the whiner, the weak, the one who didn't
            ask to be born so he wants others to do everything for him....because he's so special.
            Thank goodness we will always have the strong,to protect us, our country so
            special people like that crying whiner can continue to complain about everything, while
            he does nothing constructive or positive his entire lifetime.
            So you should be happy little whiner that men and women have fought for your right
            to cower behind a woman or a child and complain and whine about everything.
            For every little POS like you, we have others who are the exact opposite of you, and will put their life on the line
            for your right to act like a cowering per-schooler who's afraid of their own shadow.

    It was really fun! What was especially appreciated were the creativity and effort many entrants put into their displays. People really stepped up to have shiny clean cars, truck, jeeps, wagons and the like, people used patriotic decorations in new ways, and the folks walking by had great smiles and great spirit. Thank you so much!

      It was kind of sad and hokey. It may be that the Arnold parade has simply stayed the same while other communities have stepped up their game. There's something to be said for old school. Still, attendance seems to be down and overheard some of the craft vendors being disappointed.

        I have lived in Arnold for over 30 years and it is still the same ghost town that it was then. Nothing changes except occupied buildings that become vacant and then deteriorate. The same Flatlanders come and go especially on holiday weekends and congest the town. They are totally disgusting with all of the noise and crap that they bring with them.

          There's an achingly easy, palm-slap-to-the-forehead solution to Arnold's vacant buildings, lack of needed improvement, deferred maintenance, revolving door new businesses, and crappy vinyl-banner or construction paper signage: Get rid of Arnold's Planned Development. If you want a carefully, thought out, cleaned up downtown :
          Get rid of Planned Development.
          PD is the noose that chokes local land and business owners who don't want Big Box stores, but simply would like to improve their premises and properties for the betterment of the community. PD has no standards, so it is an arbitrary, entirely subjective, nebulous requirement. Imagine having to pay more than a $3,500 application fee that gets you nothing except a spot in the queue to be seen by the Planning Commission sometime within the next year - again with no written standards to rely. Arnold's slow, 20+ year downtown decline can be traced directly to the 1998 initiation of PD. Want to see improvement? Contact your District 3 Supervisor who spearheaded PD.

        Agreed, I think. It's a fine line between respecting old time traditions and being a dinosaur. Boring with too many gaps between entries and commentary (and, unfortunately, the ability to still hear comments - some seemingly under the influence at an early hour). And really, truly lacking in imagination. It's like ma and pa just said - time for the parade again, find your old t-shirt and who can march with us?

        So who did the emceeing? Voice is familiar but can't place it. That's a nice event for Arnold. I can remember when there were no parades up there. When I first visited Arnold it was back in 1966 even before BV and Mt Reba was built. My dad had an old retired railroad coworker-Maurice Parker-who was living there and we met him at the old barber shop in the middle of Arnold (probably not there anymore) and I think it was near the White Pines Lodge on the same side of the road. My folks bought their property on Ben Thorn in the BT village along the subdivision's south boundary in the summer of 1969. The cabin/retirement home was then built-as a rough shell-by Dennis Bullock. Not sure if that company still exists unless Dennis offspring took over. Back then Ben Thorn road was a dirt road from the existing cul de sac in SnowShoe Springs all the way to Sierra Parkway. Such history!

            Yes I am writing a book and it will be successful! At least I am doing something positive. What are you doing to contribute to your community and for our state and country-anything positive and productive. And growing weed does not qualify for that nor smoking it sitting on your couch all day constantly "dissing" people on your lap top! So put the pipe or joint down and go out and get a job!
