Approaching deadline for Independence Day parade sign-ups
The sign-up deadline is approaching for those interested in walking in the annual Fourth of July parade.
The â??All American: Red, White and Blue" parade will be held in downtown Kirksville next Friday at 9:30 a.m.
However, the deadline for pre-registration is Friday, June 27th.
So far, the City of Kirksville has received about two dozen applications.
Assistant City Manager, Ashley Young, shared information for those who miss deadline.
â??If someone still wants to participate in the parade but they've missed the deadline, that's fine. They can still be in the parade; They'll just be put at the end of the parade. Weâ??re really looking forward to the â??All American: Red, White and Blueâ?? festival. It will be held July 3rd through 5th. That starts on Thursday, July 3rd, in the evening, at the Forest Llewelyn Cemetery," said Young.
Pre-registration does guarantee an assigned spot and entry into the float contest sponsored by the Kirksville Kiwanis Club.
