Blue Ridge 4th of July Old Timer’s Parade
July 1, 2017 @ 10:00 AM - 11:00 PM
Blue Ridge’s Old Timers Parade is always held on the Saturday closest to the 4th of July. That means this year it is July 1, 2017.
The parade is not a 4th of July parade but rather a celebration of “Old Time Blue Ridge”. Saturday was selected by the Historical Society many, many years ago as the day the parade will take place as that was the only day “farmers” would come to town. The farmers would bring their buggies, horses, mules or tractors and ride in the parade along side city officials, local organizations, business owners, bands and anyone else that wanting to be involved. Not much since the mid 1950’s has changed.
It is still a time for all of BLUE RIDGE to come together and celebrate the way Blue Ridge, Georgia used to be. Bring your antique vehicles, dress in period attire OR not, it is up to you.
