The Town's Volunteer of the Year, Evette Randolph, was also honored in the parade.
Before beginning work on your entry, please read all the rules on our 2019 REGISTRATION FORM.
You are going to have SO much fun.
Route: Middle School down Main Street to Pine to Level; right turn before cafe onto Hickory, left on Main back to school. (Route is subject to change.)
Recently we added a children's costume contest for kids 12 and under. Get ready for it! It was a huge hit.
This down-home party offers great food, drinks, and prizes awarded to the best or weirdest parade participants. We are considering moving it to Town Hall in 2019.
So, if you're really going to get in the Carnival spirit, you gotta WEAR A COSTUME.
