Want to Participate? — Here's How

Would you like to participate in our parade event? There's nothing to it. Just show up on parade day (July 2, 2017) by 5:00pm and you're on. Everyone is welcome to help us celebrate our nation's birthday! Just be sure that what you bring to enter in the parade has something attached to it that's red, white and blue! There will be signs posted to direct you to the staging area for the parade line-up.

Bring your mules, your wagons, your antique tractors or cars, floats (with a theme for July 4th, of course), and especially yourself. saluting flagDress up as a colonial personage and enter as your own self (one year Ben Franklin with his kite showed up). Get your church or youth group involved to make something spectacular that will honor our glorious God and our wonderful country, the United States of America!

Do you know how to bake a fantastic apple pie? Maybe you have your grandma's old award-winning recipe? Then bring one (or two!) and enter them in the Apple Pie Auction. The only "rules" for this contest is that the pie has to contain real apples and must be baked in a pie plate that can be given away. Other than that, your imagination is the limit.

Not into being on display? That's all right, too. Bring your lawn chair and come prepared to feast on some delicious apple pie, home-cranked ice cream (fresh blackberry is a favorite!), pulled pork BBQ, grilled hamburgers and hotdogs (with all the fixin's), and bluegrass music. You'll be well fed by the time the evening reaches it finale in a spectacular fireworks show.
