"Here Comes The Sun" is the 2021 theme.  

This should be a very fun parade with a lot of variety!
The Town & Country Days Parade is still one of the biggest draws for our festival and the streets are lined with people every year!  Bill Kittinger organizes the parade each year and our local businesses have a very healthy competition with their floats for winning the "big" prize.  The parade begins at 1:00pm on Saturday, September 18th, this year.  Candy is abundant and kids of all ages bring their bags to load up.  After all, who doesn't love a good parade?  Be sure to stick around Saturday night to catch Asleep at the Wheel with special guest Jason Eady on the main stage!

He underwent seven months of chemotherapy and six consecutive weeks of radiation. Scans done in July 2021 showed that the cancer is gone. Graham’s family gives God all the glory for his healing and would like to thank the community for their continued prayers and the support and encouragement that they received throughout his treatment.
