Parade Downtown – Saturday 11:00 AM
The parade will again end at the main gate of Columbia Academy, located on West 7th Street, just past the railroad tracks. This will provide better viewing for more people and will help with the traffic congestion downtown, during and after the parade. All non-animal type floats, autos, trucks and people walking in the parade will enter the Columbia Academy School grounds for pick-up or disband, etc. All mule teams with wagons, mule and horse riders, etc., will stay on West 7th Street on the way to Maury County Park as in the past. No animals will be allowed to enter the Columbia Academy property.
We would like to give a Special Thanks to the City of Columbia, Maury County Government, Columbia Academy and Tennessee Mule Skinner’s Association formed by Buddy Black for help with the parade.
