Water balloons banned at this year’s Fourth of July Parade

The annual Fourth of July Parade, sponsored by the Silver State International Rodeo (SSIR), is known to get a bit wild with water balloons flying every which way, some with a lot of force, but this year, both the City of Winnemucca and SSIR are banning water balloons. The City and SSIR officials have assured that parade participants and the crowds will be allowed to uphold the traditions of using water guns and other water play, but many reports of injuries and other accidents related to water balloons have been cause for the ban.
