Faith parade kicks off at 9:45 a.m.

FAITH — Firetrucks from nearly every station in Rowan County will begin rolling down Main Street at 9:45 a.m. Wednesday to kick off the annual Faith Fourth of July parade.
Marcelle Williams, the parade’s grand marshal, will follow behind them, leading the remainder of the parade, which will include the Carson and East Rowan high school marching bands.
Williams, a Faith native, served on the Board of Education for two decades and became an active member of the town’s American Legion Post after serving in the U.S. Navy during World War II.
The mile-and-a-half parade will begin at the intersection of Rainey Road and end at Gardner Street.
Parade organizers anticipate a large crowd — an estimated 30,000 people have showed up during previous years, and recommend lining Main Street by 9 a.m. to secure a good spot to view the action and catch candy.
