The second annual Fourth of July Parade will begin Friday at 11 a.m.

The parade will start at Anderson County Middle School, go down Main Street, turn on Broadway and end at the fairgrounds, said Betty Butler of the American Legion Auxiliary.

Various community groups will be represented in the parade, including veterans, Boy Scouts, fireman and such, Butler said. All Anderson County veterans are encouraged to participate, said Shirley Thornberry, of the Auxiliary.

Participants are asked to meet at the middle school at 10 a.m. on Friday.

People can still register to be in the parade up until Friday morning.

"Anyone is welcome to come out and join," Butler said. "But they have to be there by 10 o'clock to register."

The parade is a patriotic theme and should probably last 30 to 45 minutes, Butler said.

Fireworks will be at dusk on Friday, according to the judge-executive's office.
