Event Details

Participants will gather in the courtyard in front of town hall at 9:30 AM on June 29. There will be a variety of activities before and after the parade, including the YMCA bounce house, a free craft project, chalk art, lawn games, and opportunities for families to take a family photo at the Kernersville Little Theatre photo frame. The Kernersville Fire Rescue department will display a fire truck and bring their mascot, Sparky, to greet the children.

WXII meteorologist Dylan Hudler will serve as the emcee for this year’s event. Hudler grew up in Kernersville and is a Kernersville resident. The Rotary Club will crown the 4th of July Queen, and local Girl Scout troop 13136 will serve as the flag honor guard and lead the pledge of allegiance. The Queen and an Uncle Sam character will lead the parade around the courtyard, and both will be available for photo opportunities with the children after the event. Tricycles, wagons, and strollers are welcome in the parade.
Children six and younger will receive a free Miss Mary’s Children’s Parade t-shirt and can select a free children’s book. After the procession, children can enjoy a free ice cream from Blue Skies Creamery, and adults can purchase their own ice cream from a wide selection of custom flavors. Bottled water will be available for everyone, and there will be several shade tents and a misting station if the weather is hot. The event will conclude at 11 AM.

The event will be held rain or shine. In inclement weather, the ceremonial activities and procession will be held inside the town hall courtroom.The event has been named the Miss Mary’s Children’s Parade in honor of its founder, Mary Mullinax. As she said 41 years ago, “We’ll have a parade of our own.” Join us.
