The third annual Kids’ Fourth of July Parade in Camden took place Saturday, doubling as a celebration of Kershaw County being named a 2018 All-America City community. The county’s All-America City delegation served as grand marshals, leading the parade of Independence Day-themed bicycles, scooters, strollers and wagons. Festivities began in front of Camden City Hall with the Pledge of Allegiance, patriotic music from a fife and drum corps, and more, including balloons, bubbles, face painting and the Kershaw County Library Bookmobile. Also, the Camden Fire Department showed off of its restored 1920 fire truck -- the first motorized fire truck in the city of Camden. The parade made its way up Rutledge Street and then on to the Town Green where the All-America City celebration took place featuring music from Taylor Hampton and Hope Gumbs, and performances by the KFA Dance Company and Kershaw County Diamonds step team.
