Entries needed for Blacksburg’s July 4th Parade

The Mount Tabor Ruritan Club is sponsoring the 33rd annual Blacksburg 4th of July Parade. They invite you to participate with your floats, bicycles, wagons, marchers, walkers, antique/classic cars, race cars, horses, fire engines, scouts, bands, sports teams, etc. This year’s theme is “Caring for the Land” in honor of our Parade Marshal, Smokey Bear, on his 75th Anniversary.
