Town of Farragut's 26th Annual Independence Day Parade

The Town of Farragut's 26th Annual Independence Day Parade will take place at 9:30 a.m. on Thursday, July 4, 2013.

Floats from area businesses, community and civil organizations, schools and churches will parade down Kingston Pike and continue to Boring Road, just east of Farragut Towne Square Shopping Center. Antique cars, animals, dance groups and elected officials will also be a part of the parade.

This year’s Grand Marshal is the Farragut Folklife Museum. Their float will commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Campbell Station with an encampment scene that will depict both Union and Confederate soldiers in uniform.

From 8:30 a.m. to noon, Kingston Pike will be closed from Concord Road to Boring Road. Parade detours are:

• North side - Campbell Station Road to Grigsby Chapel Road to Smith Road to Kingston Pike (going west) or Campbell Station Road to Parkside Drive to Lovell Road (going east).
• South side – Concord Road to Turkey Creek Road to Virtue Road to Kingston Pike (going west) or Concord Road to Kingston Pike (going east). S. Campbell Station Road will be open to the private road just south of the former Silver Spoon for access to the bank, post office, etc.

The portion of Kingston Pike from Concord Road/West End Avenue to Campbell Station Road will be reopened approximately 15 minutes after the final parade participant has passed through the Campbell Station Road/Kingston Pike intersection. Kingston Pike will be fully reopened once all participants are safely off the road.
