Patriot Fourth of July Parade set


This year’s Fourth of July Parade will be on Monday, July 4th and will begin at 11 a.m. The T-shirt this year is red and has a slight V-neck to it. Both the T-shirts and the parade registration forms are available in advance at the Patriot Town Hall.

Participants will line up at the Patriot boat ramp northeast of town beginning at 9 a.m. Registration will be held on a first come, first served basis so come early for a good spot.

The flag ceremony at the Memorial Park will begin immediately after the parade hopefully around noon.

Once the flag presentation has been completed, everyone is invited to proceed across the street to Harris Park for dinner at 1 p.m. Entertainment will include music, games and inflatable recreation.

Members of the Patriot/Posey Park Board are Stephany Abplanalp, Nicole Renger, Mike Turner, Larry Monjar, Jerry Turner and Marlin Abplanalp Jr.

Both the Patriot and Posey Township Fire Departments will assist with the preparation and execution of the Parade.

Patriot is the only incorporated town in the United States with that name.
