The size of the Fourth of July Kiddie Parade fluctuates. Its theme is always a surprise. So is the weather. Still, the Lovelock tradition survives and thrives. 
Since the late 1970s, the Pershing County Cattlewomen have sponsored the annual parade. Spokesperson and organizer Darlene Moura has records dating back to 1979.  However, generations of Lovelock youth have marched down Main Street to mark the nation’s birthday.
