Line-up for the Independence Day celebration begins at 9 a.m. on Seventh Street.
Having been held for more than four decades, the patriotic parade is a cherished Booneville tradition where participants and attendees dress in red, white and blue in celebration of Independence Day.
The parade will travel its usual route as it heads to Foster Park for a brief 4th of July ceremony where the Pilot Club of Booneville will serve its traditional lemonade.
Parade organizers chose to honor Booneville city officials (mayor-elect Chris Lindley, and returning aldermen Jason Michael, Jeff Williams, Mark McCoy and aldermen-elect William Scott and Lisa Stevens) to wish them well as a new page begins in Booneville’s city government.
Parade organizers Jim Lamb and Keith Shackelford stress parade safety and encourage all participants who ride bikes or 4-wheelers in the parade to wear helmets.
Safety is of the utmost importance, organizers say.
They remind those in the parade to drive slowly and watch out for each other because many families walk in the parade with their youngsters.
All are welcome to participate or watch the festivities.

Parade route: Starts on Seventh Street, then turns west on Church Street, north on Ninth Street, then east on Washington, takes right on Fifth Street and ends in Foster Park.
