Belton 4th of July Parade Celebrates 100 Years
For anyone who couldn't make it to downtown Belton this morning for the parade, we thought we would share some footage of the fun thanks to our friends down the hall at News Radio1400
This morning the city of Belton celebrated the 100th annual 4th of July Parade! James Harrison continued his tradition of broadcasting the parade live on KTEM AM.
Special thanks to the following sponsors who made this broadcast possible:
Cochran Blair & Potts
Gunter Financial Services
Smallcakes Cupcakery and Creamery
Bell Air Conditioning Incorporated
Ponders Automotive and Fleet
A & B Services
Members of the community gathered early to ensure they received the best view of the parade. Some residents even brought campers and tents up to three days before the event.
The parade route began on 10th Avenue and Main street, then headed down Central Avenue and ended at the Belton Police Memorial.
This year there were over 100 participants in the parade and thousands of spectators. If you were unfortunate enough to miss this year's parade, then worry not! We have all the highlights on our Facebook page.
