Soldiers Reunion Baby Parade to be held
“We Remember,” the theme of the 130th annual Soldiers Reunion patriotic festival, will be carried out by the youngest generation of Catawbans when toddlers and tykes are spotlighted in their own parade on Courthouse Square in Newton on Wednesday, August 14.
The “baby parade,” as the red-white-and-blue lineup of youngsters in their decorated conveyances has been called for several generations, will be staged at 6 p.m. The perennial crowd-pleasing activity will take place on the east side of Courthouse Square and is free and open to the public, for both spectators and participants.
With cute youngsters in miniature floats draped in patriotic regalia, proud relatives cheering from the sidelines, and cash prizes for the most creative entries, the yearly event promises to be a favorite part of the week-long tribute to Catawba County’s war veterans…..
