Farragut celebrates
Thousands turn out for Red, White & Blues, Independence Day parade


Led by Cheryl Williams’ communication skills and delicious egg sandwiches, a few families from View Harbour subdivision band together as a small force each year to celebrate Farragut Independence Day parade.

They specifically stake their claim to a roughly 50-foot long patch of sidewalk and right-of-way along Kingston Pike in front of Village Veterinary Medical Center each July 4 morning.

“We make it an annual tradition to come out as a group and sit out here and have fun,” Williams said about Monday’s festivities featuring almost 90 parade entries — 1,500 to 2,000 entry participants according to parade coordinator Sue Stuhl — Knox County Sheriff’s Office helicopters and sunny skies.
