Boone's Fourth of July parade 'successful'

A rule prohibiting people from throwing candy from parade floats was better enforced at this year’s Boone County Fourth of July parade held last Friday, after some near-accidents involving children going into the street for candy occurred last year. Parade Chairwoman Sarah Butts said she had not heard of any candy-throwing issues this year, and they will continue to enforce the rule in the future. “Overall, I believe the parade was very successful,” Butts said. “The parade consisted of a lot of traditional entries, but also included several first-time participants.” For more of the story, see Wednesday's Lebanon Reporter.
