Celebrate the 4th at Farragut's 28th Annual Independence Day Parade
The Town of Farragut will host the 28th Annual Independence Day Parade on Saturday, July 4. The parade will begin on Kingston Pike at Lendon Welch Way (Farragut High School entrance) and continue to Boring Road, just east of Farragut Towne Square Shopping Center (old Ingles store site).
This year's Grand Marshal is a representative from The Love Kitchen, a Knoxville charity that provides meals, clothing and emergency food packages to homebound, homeless and unemployed persons. Entries have been submitted by groups such as businesses, community and civic organizations, area schools and churches and will include the Farragut High School Band, floats, animals, antique cars, dance groups and elected officials.
Due to the parade, Kingston Pike will be closed from Concord Road to Boring Road from 8:30 a.m. to approximately noon. Following are the parade detours:
â€¢ North side - Campbell Station Road to Grigsby Chapel Road to Smith Road to Kingston Pike (going west) or Campbell Station Road to Parkside Drive to Lovell Road (going east).
â€¢ South side Concord Road to Turkey Creek Road to Virtue Road to Kingston Pike (going west) or Concord Road to Kingston Pike (going east). S. Campbell Station Road will be open to the private road just south of the former Silver Spoon for access to the bank, post office, etc.
The portion of Kingston Pike from Concord Road/West End Avenue to Campbell Station Road will be reopened approximately 15 minutes after the final parade participant has passed through the Campbell Station Road/Kingston Pike intersection.
