Old Timers Festival
Neighbors Serving Neighbors

September 12-13, 2014
Veterans Memorial Park

Old Timers Festival for 2014 has been scheduled for September 12-13. We will have the traditional parade on Saturday morning, following a full day of fun and entertainment.

2014 Information

NEIGHBORS SERVING NEIGHBORS!

The theme for the 2014 event is “Neighbors Serving Neighbors!” to honor generations of service to the community.

The grand marshals of the 2014 parade are Martin and Mary Blair, who are active members of the La Vergne Rescue Squad, which has been in operation since 1970. The parade is scheduled on Saturday, September 14.

PARADE ROUTE CLOSINGS AND INFORMATION

Line-up for the parade will begin at 9:30 a.m. in Bicentennial Park next to City Hall. All floats must be in their place no later than 10:00 a.m. and participants must be in place by 10:30 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 10:30 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.
