Independence Day is less than 3 weeks away and plans for the Red, White and Blue Festival Parade are being finalized. The parade route will also be different this year and will only travel around the city square in Kirksville. There is still time for you to enter your float into the parade and you three themes to choose from, American in the past, present and future. All details and decorations must be finished by 8:30 a.m. and awards will be given to best float in each category.
â??I think with this yearâ??s theme in place we have a lot of opportunities for neat entries. We'd like to see something from the three categories that past, the present and the future and I think it allows itself to be very creative. The past we're hoping to see some classic cars classic tractors and the future it's all up in the air. However you think American could be best represented in the future. We just enjoy seeing everyone come out and celebrating the 4th of July with us. It's great to see all the kids lined up and we're happy to put on this parade for them,â?? said Robin Harden Recreation Specialist.
