Patriotism and love of county are alive and well in Cooleemee!

As our nation celebrates its 243rd  birthday, Cooleemee will host a day of activities promising fun for all ages!

Come enjoy the annual July 4th patriotic lawn mower parade in Cooleemee this Thursday. This patriotic event sponsored by the town of Cooleemee grows each year as entrants decorate a wide variety of lawn mowers, bicycles, golf carts, and floats. Walkers are welcome, too.

The parade will begin at 10 a.m. at Cooleemee Elementary School on Marginal Street and wind its way up and down the quiet streets of Cooleemee until it reaches the Zachary House. Follow along the parade route and enjoy a stroll down the historic and picturesque streets lined with great old shade trees and historic mill homes.

Food, Water Fun & More
Following the parade, there will be festivities on the Zachary House grounds including free watermelon and ice cream, games, water fun, and more! The Ladies Auxiliary of the Cooleemee/Mocksville VFW will be selling hotdogs, chips, and drinks as a fundraiser.

If entering the parade, please be dressed or decorated in a patriotic theme and meet at 9 a.m. in the elementary school parking lot on Marginal Street.  There will be prizes for the best-decorated floats, lawnmowers, golf carts, or bikes.
