The parade itself begins at 10 am, starting near Truckee High School and progressing 1.5 miles down Donner Pass Road into historic Downtown Truckee, concluding around noon. There is a free shuttle from Truckee neighborhoods starting at 8 am, making it easier for you to arrive early and find a good spot.
