Plans for the Town of Greeneville's second annual American Downtown Fourth of July Celebration have been announced.
A news release from the town says the event will include fireworks, a parade, entertainment, food and children's activities. Admission to American Downtown will be free.
American Downtown will be held in the afternoon and evening on Friday, July 4, with most of the festivities planned for the Big Spring area behind the Greeneville-Greene County Public Library.
Grand Marshal for the parade will be Scott Jones, of The History Channel's "Counting Cars," who will be accompanied by Dale Kyker and KXA Mafia, of Kyker's Xtreme Automotive on Tusculum Boulevard.
The Main Street parade, featuring more entry categories this year, will kick off the celebration at 2 p.m.
The theme of this year's parade is "Let Freedom Ring," signified by the ringing of downtown church bells as the parade begins, the release says.
Additional details about the parade will be announced at a later date.
"Following the parade, an afternoon and evening of music, family fun and other festivities will be held at the Big Spring," the release says.
The celebration will end with a downtown fireworks display that will be even larger than last year's show, according to Amy Rose, Town of Greeneville Public Relations Manager and organizer of the event.
