The 9th annual Anderson County Veterans Day parade will be held on Veterans Day—Wednesday November 11th—at 6 pm in downtown Clinton. This year’s theme is “A Celebration of all Anderson County Veterans” and parade entries are currently being accepted. There is no entry fee but donations will be accepted to help offset the cost of advertising the events. The parade is dedicated to the men and women who have served in the United States military and all entries, according to the Anderson County Veteran Services Office “shall conform to the theme, be patriotic and show respect to our veterans, active military and the United States Flag.” The only national flag allowed in the parade is the American flag and the only state flag will be Tennessee’s. Active duty, National Guard and Scouting units may fly any flag or banner authorized for their unit. No other flags are permitted in the parade and any deviations from that rule must be requested in writing and approved prior to the parade. Weapons may not be discharged during the parade and the throwing of objects is strictly prohibited. All animal entries must have on a diaper, bag or someone walking with a scoop. The parade will begin on Cullom Street, turn left on to Market, left on to Main Street and pass by the Anderson County Courthouse before turning right on to Broad Street, where it will then disperse. Entries must register in advance by 5 pm on Tuesday November 10th and all participants will line up in the parking lot on Commerce Street behind the old hammer’s building.
