4th of July Steam Engine Parade


Tired of the same old every 4th of July? Can't bare the thought of choking down another ghastly hot dog or lighting another firecracker? Looking for a change of pace? Well how about a parade of vintage steam traction engines? That's about as different as it gets.




Way back in 1957 Glen "A.G." Thomas decided a steam engine parade would be a good way to celebrate the 4th and every year since then the Forsyth County Steam Association has carried on the tradition with a parade through the town square of Cumming, Georgia.




The parade begins at 10:00am at the intersection of Tribble Gap and Woodland Dr. , winds it's way through the town to Courthouse Square and ends at the fairgrounds around 12:00 noon.




You can find more information about this event by visiting www.cummingfair.net or www.cityofcumming.net . Meanwhile, here's a video clip of a 1902 Case engine at the Steam Expo last November.
