Don’t let the parade pass you by

There’s still time for late entries in Clayton’s July 4 Parade. So, put a coat of wax on the old pick-up, stock up on crepe paper streamers and load up the back with flag-waving patriots. Join your friends and neighbors, clubs, scout troops, and marching bands in this most patriotic and traditional celebration of our country’s independence.

Fill out a parade application at the city of Clayton website at, or pick one up at City Hall and get it in by the end of the day on Monday.

No advance entry is needed for the Kiddie Parade – just show up with decorated bikes, trikes, scooters and the family dog at the flagpole by 10 a.m.

The day starts early with the annual Rotary Club pancake breakfast at 7 a.m. at Endeavor Hall.

The parade begins at 10 and Clayton’s Cw Wolfe will be back on the grandstand this year as Grand Marshall.
