According to a release from the chamber, the parade will take place at 3 p.m. on July 4, which falls on a Sunday this year.
The parade will begin at the corner of Taylor Street and 16th Street and end at the intersection of Taylor Street and Fifth Street.
“The start time we selected will give all the people who want to go to church ample time to get home, eat and make it to the parade,” said Military Affairs Committee Chairman Daniel Ham in the release. “I hope we will have a great turnout and celebration.”
The Military Affairs Committee would like civic groups, military groups, the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, clubs and organizations, youth groups and church groups to participate.
“They’ll contact the Chamber of Commerce,” said Allan Imes, who is planning the event, when asked how groups can sign up to participate.
“(The chamber is) maintaining the sign-up list and all the totals.”
Imes said he hopes everyone who has a patriotic spirit either watches the parade or marches in it.
A wide variety of transportation will be permitted for parade participants.
“Bicycles, tricycles, floats, march units, riding lawnmowers, people pulling wagons and whatever else people want to do to add to the parade is welcome,” said committee member David Otto in the release.
Imes said the Military Affairs Committee is in the early stages of planning the parade. The committee hopes to get the word out to the community and encourage people to sign up.
Those interested in registering should call the chamber at 770-228-8200 or visit the Griffin Regional Welcome Center at the corner of Broad Street and Hill Street. The deadline to sign up for the parade is July 1.
