Calaveras County closed out the Fourth of July weekend with two popular annual celebrations – the Ebbetts Pass Independence Day Parade in Arnold and the Independence Day Celebration at Ironstone Vineyards.

Highway 4 was lined with people Saturday morning waving flags and watching patriotic floats roll through Arnold during the “Proud to be an American” parade. Arnold residents John and Laurie Detrick were the grand marshals and the Ebbetts Pass Volunteer Fire Association held their annual fundraiser festival after the parade.

Also on Saturday, Ironstone Vineyards held the annual Independence Day Celebration, which featured a day of live music, food and drinks and a fireworks show to end the night. Sonora band Chains Required opened the concert, followed by Sacramento-area band Whiskey Dawn. Shane Dwight closed the night with sets before and after the fireworks show, which kicked off with 2011 Bret Harte High graduate Sarah Kraemer singing “America the Beautiful,” and “The Star-Spangled Banner.”
