Town of Greeneville officials have announced they are moving forward with their 4th of July celebration but with some minor changes.
The 8th annual America Downtown celebration will expand to a citywide event to try and help curb the spread of COVID-19. Among differences in this year’s festivities includes changing the Andrew Johnson Bank Parade to a caravan style parade with vehicles only while routing the parade to pass along certain places to prevent the gathering of large crowds.
Along other changes includes food trucks will be spread across the city and the kids zone has been canceled due to safety concerns.
Additional details can be found below:
*The Andrew Johnson Bank Parade will be caravan style. Entries will be vehicle only. The caravan will travel slowly throughout the city, including a portion of U.S. Highway 11E (Bypass), so no floats, horses or walking entries will be allowed. To prevent the gathering of large crowds of spectators along Main Street as in previous years, the caravan will pass locations where residents, business owners, and their employees can share patriotic greetings with the parade entrants. Anyone living outside the city, can gather in designated parking lots and practice social distancing. The route is being mapped based on input from the public. To submit your location, visit www.greenevilletn.gov. Deadline is June 12.
*The Waste Industries entertainment lineup for this year is one of the best ever, Rose said. Separate locations throughout the city have been identified for concerts by Aaron Walker Band, Imperial Inc. featuring 7 Figgas, The Flying J’s, and Strong Ties bluegrass gospel. The goal is to include the concert locations along the caravan route, both of which will be announced soon.
*The American Downtown Fireworks show will continue this year behind Greene High School’s Burley Stadium. Spectators are encouraged to practice social distancing to enjoy the 10 p.m. show.
*Food trucks for American Downtown will be located citywide.
*The Kids Zone has been canceled due to safety concerns.
*For kids, American Downtown will offer a new Superhero Art Contest, created by Rose’s niece, Khloe Overbay. To enter, kids and teens can draw or color a representation of their superheroes and submit them by email to email@example.com or drop them off at Town Hall. Prizes will be awarded in age groups ranging from 5 to 18. Overbay created the art contest as part of her at-home schoolwork during the Coronavirus outbreak.
