Coahoma readies for Freedom Day celebration

July 1, 2013

COAHOMA — Preparations for this year's Freedom Day festivities are just about complete, organizers said.

Coahoma's Freedom Parade, featuring floats, cars and tractors festooned in their red, white and blue best, will make its way down First Street beginning at 10 a.m. Saturday

The parade will start at the Coahoma High School football stadium and proceed south on First, east on the north service road, then north on Sixth Street before ending at the city park.

Judging for this year's event will be held at the stadium parking lot, so organizers urge people to have their entries in place and ready for display by 9:20 a.m.

Coahoma-area veterans who will be honored as parade grand marshals this year are Robert and Johnny Helm, Larry Pherigo and Bobby Sullivan.

The celebration won't end with the parade, however, as food, games and music will be featured at the city park later in the day.

A hamburger lunch will be provided by the Coahoma Lions' Club. The $5 meals include burger, chips and dessert.
