Individuals interested in promoting their business, team, school or organization in this year’s Knox Independence Day Parade will need to have their application submitted by Friday, June 29th. Mayor Dennis Estok issued a reminder about the deadline when city council members met Tuesday night.
There is no entry fee to be a part of the parade. Individuals would just need to fill out the application with their contact information and relevant details and return the document to the Mayor’s Office before the end of business hours on the final Friday in June. No applications will be accepted after the deadline, with no exceptions.
This year the Fireworks and Family Fun Day celebration will be held on Saturday, July 7th. The parade will begin at 1 p.m. and the gates to Wythogan Park will open at 2 p.m. for a full day of food, music and fun activities for citizens of all ages. The fireworks display will start around 9:30 p.m.
