Old Timers Festival
“A Moment in Time”
September 12, 2015
Veterans Memorial Park
Old Timers Festival for 2015 has been scheduled for September 12. We will have the traditional parade on Saturday morning, following a full day of fun and entertainment.
The theme for the 2015 event is “A Moment in Time”.
PARADE ROUTE CLOSINGS AND INFORMATION
Line-up for the parade will begin at 8:30 a.m. in Bicentennial Park next to City Hall. All floats must be in their place no later than 9:00 a.m. and participants must be in place by 9:30 a.m. for judging. Place numbers will be given upon parade check-in Saturday morning. The parade route will be City Hall to Veterans Memorial Park.
Beginning at 9:30 a.m., WEST Murfreesboro Rd. (going toward Nashville) will be closed for the parade. West bound traffic between Veterans Memorial Pkwy (by the post office) and 73rd Ave (by the library) will be diverted to the East bound side (one lane each direction). Residents of Rutherford Pointe and Pattys Cove area will be allowed to leave on Floyd Mayfield (only toward Sand Hill Rd.) until the parade is close to Floyd Mayfield and it is no longer safe for traffic. At that time, residents will not be able to leave until the parade is complete. Additionally, traffic will be heavily impacted at the following intersections along Mboro Rd.: Madison Square/George Chaney, Stones River Rd., Floyd Mayfield. Any entries to businesses along the route will also be affected. This traffic impact is only during the parade, not throughout the weekend.
