CROSSVILLE — Don your red, white, and blue and join us at the Palace Theatre as we celebrate the 236th birthday of America! The Crab-Orchard Chapter NSDAR is pleased to sponsor the Children’s Fourth of July Parade for all young patriots (and those young at heart) beginning at the Palace Theatre down Main Street to the Depot on Wednesday, July 4. Parade will begin at 10 a.m. We encourage all to dress patriotically and “strut your stuff” as we take a walk down Main Street, ride a decorated bicycle, or take on the persona of George Washington, Uncle Sam, Betsy Ross or some other historic figure from America’s past. Parents and grandparents are welcome to accompany the young patriots as they walk or pull them in a wagon or push them in a stroller. Children’s battery-powered vehicles will be allowed; however, no gasoline powered vehicles will be permitted. Gather at 9:30 with parade beginning at 10 at the Historic Palace to show your patriotism, love of country, and a good time. Questions can be directed to Lynn Speich at 865-354-0809.
