Did You Know… when this July 4th Float by the Perry National Guard was presented? This photo is of the Perry National Guard unit and their float from that July 4th, 1955 parade in Perry.


I have been attending or taking part in Perry’s July 4th parade for most of my 73 years. This event was, and continues to be, something Perry has always done well.


I will say the parade is not as grand as it once was, but I accept that times change. I know we have fewer businesses and organizations to take part. I for one, will stand as our flag passes by. I also thank everyone who will take time out of their busy life, to take part in our annual July 4th parade. Enjoy a fun and safe July 4th in our hometown.
