Veterans honored at parade, recreation fields

Hundreds lined the highway for the Independence Day Pride of Pike parade with the theme “We Shall Never Forget.” As the parade passed the courthouse, spectators applauded loudly as volunteers carried plaques commemorating the 173 veterans from Georgia who have lost their lives in Iraq and Afghanistan. Thousands showed up at the recreation fields for a fun-filled afternoon and a spectacular fireworks display. Local bands kept the crowds entertained as kids enjoyed the inflatables and climbing wall before sundown and the fireworks began.
