Hello again, fellow Creekers.
Due to an overwhelming response from the community and visitors, we wanted to make the Christopher Creek Independence Day Parade a two-part series.
Everyone should appreciate and enjoy without hesitation a small-town parade. The Christopher Creek Independence Day Parade was no exception.
The second annual July 4th Celebration which took place Saturday, June 30, was complete as several generations of patriotic participants, citizens and local celebrities flew the colors of our country’s flag of freedom and independence — the red, white and blue.
There were over 45 patriotic entrants lined up at the Tall Pines Market as the parade headed on its designated route down the Christopher Creek loop. People from all parts of the surrounding community sat in the shade and applauded. All along Apple Lane and Columbine Road people were lined up in lawn chairs cheering the parade onward.
Honorable mentions go to Creekside Restaurant, which passed out coupons to the crowd and parade entrants and to The Landmark @ the Creek, which provided ice cream for children of all ages, along with food, beverages, and live entertainment into the evening for the adults.
John Mitchell (pictured) was the grand marshal.
Thanks to everyone who sent in pictures from the event. We will include another picture next week in Part 2.
