Old Timers Festival
“A Moment in Time”

September 19, 2015
Veterans Memorial Park

Old Timers Festival for 2015 has been rescheduled for September 19. We will have the traditional parade on Saturday morning, following a full day of fun and entertainment.

Letter from the Mayor
I want to welcome you with open arms and southern hospitality to the 2015 Old Timers Festival at La Vergne. It has been an annual event for over 35 years. This year we are bringing it back to the original one-day event starting with an awesome parade through the heart of the city. The parade will finish up at Veterans Memorial Park where you will find booths, crafts and local vendors, great food and lots of fun for everyone. It has been a Middle Tennessee tradition for years.

Mark your calendar as a must-see event with live music by The Willis Clan. All attendees are encouraged to participate in all of the festivities!

Dennis Waldron
Mayor of La Vergne

The theme for the 2015 event is “A Moment in Time”.

The grand marshal of the 2015 parade will be announced at a later date. The parade is scheduled on Saturday, September 19.

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.
