The parade was held on the fair’s Veterans & Military Appreciation Day; on this day all military, veterans, and their families received free admission.
One parade participant said his father is a veteran and he is glad his school participates in the parade to honor them.
“It was fun participating because my dad is a veteran,” said parade participant Matthew Sneed. ” And well, our school has done this every year. This is my second year doing it. And it is really fun to do it and I think it’s important.”
People on parade floats, and four-wheelers passed out candy and beads throughout the fair
while local high school bands and r-o-t-c programs honored veterans with cheers.
