30th Annual parade kicks off Independence Day celebration

Thousands of Farragut parade enthusiasts weren’t going to let a serious threat of rain, not to mention cloudy skies, stop them from enjoying 30th Annual Town of Farragut Independence Day Parade Tuesday morning, July 4.

Scores of parade entries made their annual trek down Lendon Welch Way from Farragut High School before turning west onto Kingston Pike around 9:30 a.m. Parade ended in “old Ingles” parking lot just past Boring Road. Grand Marshal was Amanda Hara, an award-winning news anchor at WVLT-TV. Preceding the parade was Second Annual Fleet Feet Freedom Run 1-Mile & 2-Mile races featuring 230 total entries.
