Residents are encouraged to gather in the church parking lot as early as 9:30 a.m. for the walking parade that will feature decorated wagons, bicycles, and golf carts.

Prizes will be awarded at the parade’s conclusion in several categories.
"The Celebrate Community Parade has grown in popularity over the past two years and we’re excited to see the response this year," said Olde Town Event Coordinator Sandy Daniels. "The enthusiasm of the participants and spectators along the route is electric and we’re excited that this year’s parade will be the precursor to fireworks returning to Olde Town the following week on July 3 at the Red, White and Boom event."
