Galloway’s annual 4th of July Parade starts Friday at 9am on July 4th. This will be the biggest year ever with about 200 entries including 4 marching bands. National celebrities will also be attending. Kelly Wright of Fox News will sing “America The Beautiful” at the post parade ceremony immediately following the parade at Smithville Village.
Dr. Nina Radcliff, from Dr. Oz, Nancy Grace and Fox News medical correspondent, will also be in the parade. Dr. Radcliff will be in the black military Humvee driven by Galloway Patriot publisher, Jaime Knutson. Kelly Wright will be in the military troop truck driven by Chuck Knutson, Publisher of the Galloway Patriot. The military truck is a rolling memorial dedicated to the Marines of BLT 1/8 who died in the Beirut barracks bombing in 1983. The truck and driver are also made available to Galloway Twp. for emergency response matters like natural disasters.
