Calling all Dixie Youth League baseball and softball teams, local school and travel ball teams, pets and their owners, 4-H clubs, veterans, American Legion and VFW members, Ladie’s Auxiliary groups, Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts, elected officials, church groups, pageant queens, cheerleaders, organizations and even families! You are invited to show your patriotism by marching in an Independence Day parade from the M & B Train to the redlight on North Pear at 6 p.m. on Thursday, July 4.
Once the parade ends, the booths will open for the Moonlight Market on North Pear Street, sponsored by Blountstown Main Street. The market will feature arts, crafts, food, games, a dunking booth, train rides and all sorts of fun. Come show off your singing skills and do karaoke during the event!
After dark, the skies will light up for the annual fireworks show, sponsored by Rivertown Community Church, Ramsey Piggly Wiggly, and Blountstown Rotary Club. The fireworks will be shot from Blountstown Middle School on North Main, so downtown is the place to be to see a great show!
Anyone participating in the parade should gather at the M & B Train at 5:45 p.m. The parade will start at 6 p.m. Prizes awarded to the most patriotic.
Call 447-2765 or message Blountstown Main Street on Facebook to confirm attendance or to reserve a free booth for the Market.
