‘VOLUNTEERISM IN OUR COMMUNITY’ – 2013 INDEPENDENCE DAY CELEBRATION
Grand Marshal Pegram Volunteer Fire Chief Brent Stuart
Start the day with a yummy pancake breakfast at Pegram United Methodist Church.
Make sure to bring a bag for all the candy you’re sure to get as Grand Marshal Brent Stuart leads the Annual Independence Day Parade! Brent has been leading our community in volunteerism for 21 years, serving as fireman, Captain, and now Chief, leading his men and families out of harms way, helping with his children’s baseball and softball teams and still being a dad and father and working full time. We’re so glad to recognize his many years of service to our community!
Parade route will be Hwy 70 to Weigela, right on Juniper and right on Dogwood, back to 70. Please be aware that Hwy 70 will be CLOSED during the parade! After the fireworks, traffic will be congested, as well.
Vendors include many different types of food, crafts, rides for the little ones, inflatables, a WATER SLIDE and a rock climbing wall!
And don’t forget about the barbecue at Pegram Community Club!
There will be a wide variety of entertainment this year, as always. Be sure to be near the Pavilion at noon to hear the wonderful rendition of “The National Anthem” sung by Jennafer Russell, followed by The Oddfellows of Pegram Veterans Memorial Service. Randy Moomaw will recite one of his poems just before the Baby Pageant begins.
On the Grand Stage (left field stage), we will have song and dance by “The Way”, Virginia’s Music Center, David Mathews, Bandits, Jennafer, Melody and Emmy Russell and Josh Bunning, and the Harpeth Baptist Youth Group.
The night band will be “Livin’ the Dream” (below), playing classic rock favorites from 6:30-9:30, when we have the best fireworks show in the world!!
