MILTON, Ga. – In the short time Milton has been a city – going on seven years now – it has managed to create a few traditions. One of these is the annual July 4 parade in Crabapple.

The half-mile Crabapple Community Association’s Fourth of July Walking Parade will be held Friday, July 4 at 10 a.m. Attendees are encouraged to get creative with their costumes and wagons and animals to walk the streets behind the Olde Blind Dog Irish Pub in Crabapple. Afterward, vendors will be serving up fun, games and drinks.

Prizes will be awarded for best costumes, including most patriotic adult, family pet and kid. Registration is encouraged.

The North Fulton School of Music will perform as well.

“We are hoping for between 125 and 150 people,” said Nancilee Wolfe, co-chair of the event for the CCA.

The parade begins at 10 a.m., and participants are asked to arrive by 9:30 a.m. and gather at the Braeburn Commercial Buildings. Parking is available at the Crabapple Baptist Church and Strawberry Fields. A children’s activity area will be set up to be enjoyed after the parade.
