Elizabethton held their annual 4th of July parade on Wednesday.
Hundreds of people lined Elk Avenue as about 20 decorated floats, veterans' organizations and local politicians came down the street. Congressman Phil Roe and State Senator Rusty Crowe made appearances.
The grand marshal was City Councilman Bill Carter, who is an Army veteran.
Parade-goers said it was a great chance to see what the town has to offer and to honor veterans present and past who paid the ultimate price for our country.
"I think it's a time where everyone comes together," said Bobbie Wanserski.
"We come to see what the town has to offer for floats and attractions," said Mike Wanserski.
"It's about freedom. We're celebrating our freedom and the ones who fought for us," said Zac Wanserski.
Wings Air Rescue flew over the parade as well.
Fireworks are scheduled to begin after the Twins baseball game around 9:30 or 10:00 p.m.
