Despite temperatures in the low 90s by late morning, thousands lined both sides of Kingston Pike to watch Town of Farragut’s annual Independence Day Parade Thursday, July 4. The Parade started at Lendon Welch Way, at the Farragut High School entrance, and finished just west of Boring Road.

Spectators enjoyed roughly 95 entries and Knox County Sheriff’s Office helicopters flying overhead.
