The schedule is set for an old-fashioned hometown Fourth of July celebration in Port St. Joe.

The committee charged with assembling the pieces for a celebratory blowout has finalized the lineup for festivities on Friday, July 4.

And it all starts at 6:30 p.m. ET when a parade will meander down Reid Avenue toward City Commons Park.

The committee wants this to be a Fourth of July parade as they’ve been in the past, with the folks, young and old, big and small, who call this community home the main attraction.

In particular, the children, who are encouraged to mount their bicycles or go-karts or similar mode of transportation to join in the celebration of our nation’s birth.

And don’t forget the red, white and blue color scheme.

Each child will receive a token of appreciation for their participation.
