Parade of Lights. Beginning at dusk, a parade of fire trucks, ambulance and police will meet at Independence High School to begin the Parade of Lights— will travel from the school, up Robert C Byrd Drive, through downtown (Neville, Heber, Main, Fayette, Prince), onto RC Byrd Drive and ending at the Linda K.

On September 11, 2001 3,000 children was born on a day that shook our world to the core. The 911.org foundation has worked with these children —now Seniors in high school—to stand in solidarity and bring HOPE back to our communities. Hope in the form of standing against hateful speech, actions and thoughts and to spend this day spreading hope by doing a good deed. We ask our residents to spread hope and love by doing one good deed for our community.
