The town of Whitefield plans to resume its annual 4th of July parade this year, after a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic.
Floats and vehicles for the parade should line up northbound on Head Tide Road, just south of the intersection with East River Road, in time for a 10 a.m. departure. The parade will head south on East River Road, then turn west on Pittston Road.
Food will be available during the parade and the auction will begin immediately after. Kings Mills Fire Station and Union Hall is at the southern end of Townhouse Road, near the intersection with Pittston Road.
The festivities will take place in the village of Kings Mills and, in addition to the parade, will include an auction of donated items and sales of food and merchandise by the Kings Mills Volunteer Fire Association and a sale of white elephants by the Union Hall.
Proceeds from KMVFA activities are used to maintain the Kings Mills Fire Station and support the Municipal Fire Service.
Items donated for the auction can be delivered to the Kings Mills Fire Station at 904 Townhouse Road from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday and Saturday July 1 and 2 and from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday July 3. Organizers cannot choose auction items this year, and must refuse large furniture donations.
All baked goods donations can be dropped off at the fire station before the parade.
