Rocky Top plans Second Annual July 4 events

The City of Rocky Top presents its Second Annual Fourth of July Bash in Memory of Tiny Houck.

Once again, the City hopes to bring the community together for a day filled with fun and excitement, which will begin with a Kids’ Parade.

Kids of all ages can decorate non-motorized bicycles, scooters, strollers, wagons, wheelchairs, or just simply march through the parade to the ball field. Registration for the Kids’ Parade begins at 1 p.m. in the parking lot of SunTrust Bank and kids will march down Main Street to the ballfield, where they can play the rest of the day away.

There will be bounce houses, an even larger water slide, obstacle course, a BIGGER rock wall, four Euro-bungees (trampoline), trackless train rides, the Little Ponderosa petting zoo, music, cotton candy, snow cones, and popcorn…all for free.

Plus, stars like Spider Man, Captain America and Rocky Top’s own Elvis will make appearances.

There will also be new food vendors and food trucks, and the Matthew Hickey Band will be playing from 8 p.m. through the end of the fireworks show, which will begin at approximately 10 p.m.

City Hall will host a car and motorcycle show from 2 - 8 p.m. Knoxville Harley Davidson will be on site from 2 - 5 p.m. To participate, it’s $15 per motorcycle and $25 per car.

Register ASAP to reserve a free commemorative tee-shirt.
