Annual Liberty Parade on July Fourth in Todd
Celebrate independence by joining the parade instead of sitting on the sidelines.
Todd's annual Liberty Day Parade will be held Monday, July 4, with the theme of "Grounding Ourselves." The parade features props, large puppets and costumes for everyone, designed for creative fun for the whole family.
New for this year's parade is the Earth Puppet, which takes 10 to 15 people to operate, and it represents local flora and fauna using a batik parachute and paper mache animal heads.
All are welcome to gather at 10 a.m. at the intersection of N.C. 194 and Railroad Grade Road in Todd to select colorful costumes and props. Mr. and Mrs. Liberty will then lead the parade, beginning at 11 a.m., down Railroad Grade Road to the Walter and Annie Cook Park, followed by fun, music and creative entertainment.
Bean burritos, lemonade and other food will be available for a suggested donation. The event is hosted by Elkland Art Center, a non-profit group dedicated to celebrating communities through creativity.
