2023 Parade Participant Information
Road Closures: Parade participants from Corbett will be diverted up Woodard, down Nielsen and then come back up the highway, through the road closure to make a right turn into Job Corps. Parade participants from in town will be directed through the road closure and on to Job Corps. There will be a Citizens Patrol Officer and a parade volunteer who will safely direct all parade participants through the road closure at HCRH and Nielsen. We have been instructed that anyone coming from Corbett and down Nielsen should easily be able to make the turn back up the highway. Anyone who feels that that is not safe for their size of vehicle should continue on the highway and turn around where they feel is safe and lawful.
Parade participants: You will be directed up the Job Corps driveway to the registration booth just past the gate entrance.
Parade registration: This will begin at 8am and will end promptly at 9:30am. Parade registration is $15 and all proceeds will be funding our Home Town 4th of July 2024. Select here to download the application.
Car Club participants: Classic cars will start the parade at 10am and will be followed by the rest of the parade participants.
