Any church, business, civic organization or other group can participate in the parade to support the theme: “Honoring Our Fallen Heroes”. Whether it’s a decorated float, vehicle, or anything else, participation is key to properly supporting our Veteran community and remembering those that gave the ultimate sacrifice. However, at the minimum, entries are asked to respectively display our American flag. This year all entries will be judges for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place overall. The Grand Marshall and guest speaker for the parade and the following ceremony will be Wade Smith, recently recognized in North Georgia News articles.
