Come enjoy the annual July 4th patriotic lawn mower parade in Cooleemee this Saturday. This patriotic event sponsored by the town of Cooleemee grows each year as entrants decorate a wide variety of lawn mowers, old and new. The lawn mower floats will parade up and down the quiet streets of Cooleemee beginning at 10:00 AM starting at the Cooleemee Elementary School. Come follow along the parade route and enjoy a stroll down the historic and picturesque streets lined with great old shade tree and historic mill homes.
The annual lawn mower parade will end at the Zachary House grounds where you can continue celebrating with free ice cream, watermelon, snow cones and more.
Lawn Mower Parade Is Prelude to the Great Bull Hole Duck Race
The Lawn Mower Parade is a fitting prelude to the main event of the day, “The Great Bull Hole Duck Race” where there are plans to race up to 1,000 rubber ducks down the river from the beach at the Bullhole. The ducks, adopted for $5 each are racing for $400 in cash prizes. Call the Davie County Chamber of Commerce today at 751-3304 and adopt your own duck for only 5 bucks!
