Arnold’s Independence Day Parade This Saturday
The Greater Arnold Business Association (GABA) will host the Arnold Independence Day Parade this Saturday, July 2nd, starting at 10 a.m. on Highway 4 in Arnold.
Parade Chairman Linda Baker was Friday’s KVML “Newsmaker of the Day”.
This patriotic celebration draws an exuberant crowd, numbering eight thousand to ten thousand, along Highway 4 in downtown Arnold.
Entry categories include floats, marching units, auto groups, auto individual, equestrian, fire trucks, family groups, youth floats and individual, club or service organization, youth individuals, and local business floats. The parade typically lasts a little over an hour.
