It was a blazing hot fourth of July in Yadkin County but that didn’t stop residents from coming out to downtown Yadkinville to enjoy the annual Independence Day Parade.
This year’s Grand Marshals were Air Force veteran Dave George and Gavin Hutchens, who is currently serving in the U.S. Marine Corps.
Local law enforcement, firefighters and emergency services personnel took part in the parade and there was an even an appearance by Uncle Sam himself, portrayed by veteran Pete Knight.
A number of area veterans were also in the Yadkinville parade. Classic cars, youth sports teams and local churches promenaded down Main Street as well. No Yadkin County parade would be complete without a few tractors.
Following the parade, the evening concluded with a fireworks display.
