Booneville will celebrate America’s independence with the annual Neighborhood Fourth of July Parade set this year for July 3.
The long-running celebration will begin with lineup starting at 10 a.m. on Saturday, July 3 on Seventh Street and then turning on to Eighth Street once Seventh Street fills up, said organizer Jim Lamb.
This year’s parade grand marshal honor will recognize all medical workers including all hospital, nursing home and other medical staff and emergency medical responders.
Lamb said after the challenges of the past year they feel it’s especially appropriate to honor these individuals for their service to the community.
The parade will take its traditional route through the neighborhood, ending at Foster Park where the Booneville Pilot Club will be serving lemonade.
Lamb said they encourage everyone to come out and join in celebrating America’s freedoms. All individuals, families, civic groups, church groups, and anyone else is welcome to participate in the parade.
He said they do ask everyone to be safety conscious, especially young children who may be riding bikes, scooters or other toys and observe all safety rules so everyone can enjoy a safe and fun celebration.
