She said, “We hope the parade will include cars, carts, walkers, bikes, four-wheelers, tractors, horses, fire trucks, and anything else that moves.”

Following the parade, Benton said, the Fourth of July program will begin at 9 a.m. at the park where there will be ribbons for parade and costume winners and Lovell will speak.

Lowndesboro Mayor Rick Pate said, “Please come and celebrate the birth of the greatest nation in the history of mankind. We will have a parade with children, horses, dogs, bikes and more along with some patriotic songs and a short patriotic message followed by cake, watermelon and lemonade.”
