The 2014 July 4th Town of Farragut parade is in the books. It stepped off at 9:30 a.m. and I walked away to the car at 10:30 a.m., political season brings out the entries and this year was no exception. This year we had Hardin Valley school kids, a Karns florist, a candidate for school board that is no where close to Farragut and a Bearden High group. I guess all them people like our Farragut influence. Anyhoo.
Let’s start the review, I have correspondents all over East TN and have plans for multiple parade stories.
