July 4th Parade in Gatlinburg
July 4th, 2014

The SCTP made its inaugural entrance in the Gatlinburg July 4th Midnight Parade, attended by an estimated 100,000 people. The SCTP float was manned by Sevier County home school students dressed as founding fathers (and mothers) and reading quotes from the founders in between patriotic music played through the float’s sound system. As we marched along the parade route, there were many that stood and applauded, sometimes entire sections of people did a standing ovation as we passed by. Although our float was not the biggest or the loudest, the Tea Party was very well received in the parade. It was a great night to be a patriot!
