The second annual Crabapple July 4th Walking Parade, sponsored by the Crabapple Community Association (CCA), will take place at 9 a.m. in historic downtown Crabapple (the half-mile route begins at McFarlin Lane).
As in previous years, the parade is an open event in which citizens may march. If you don't want to walk the parade route, you can be a spectator and cheer everyone on. Organizers will have water and freeze pops while supplies last.
If you want to take part, please gather in the staging area at the Braeburn Development at 8:30 a.m.
Councilwoman Karen Thurman and her husband, Mark, will act as Parade Marshals. Prizes will be awarded for best decorated vehicle, best pet, most enthusiastic, best dressed individual and most creative.
Organizers said participants are invited to walk, ride a tricycle or use a stroller, wheelchair or other small vehicle. However, because of the crowd, no large bicycles please. Additionally, no cars or floats are allowed, and firecrackers and sparklers are prohibited.
Pets may be included, but they must be on a leash and owners are responsible for clean-up.
Parking is available at Crabapple First Baptist Church and Strawberry Fields. Parking for those with Disabled Parking placards will be at the Braeburn office at McFarlin Lane.
