PEGRAM’S INDEPENDENCE DAY CELEBRATION TO TAKE PLACE ON SATURDAY, JULY 20! ‘VOLUNTEERISM IN OUR COMMUNITY’
2013 Grand Marshal Pegram Volunteer Fire Chief Brent Stuart
Last weeks article went to press before the 4th, so there was no way to know that the entire day would be rained out! Of the many people we’ve spoken to, some remember the parade being pushed back or rain during the day, and even last years extreme heat and drought conditions making the fireworks impossible, but no one remembers rain or heat making the whole day a bust!
Well…. we’ve managed to reschedule everything- parade, vendors, music, games, pageants, rides, tball, and fireworks for Saturday, July 20!!
Pegram United Methodist Church will again hold its pancake breakfast. Please note that the time is from 7-9:30am.
The Pegram Community Club will NOT have another bbq, but we will have a vendor with pulled pork and ribs!
All vendors are returning, so please come out and enjoy the 4th after the 4th!!
The schedule for everything at the park will be the same!
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!
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”, playing classic rock favorites from 6:30-9:30, when we have the best fireworks show in the world!!
