“Milltown Pride” cast members were Demorest parade grand marshal

Members of the cast and crew of the Georgia-based movie, “Milltown Pride,” were selected as the grand marshal entry in the Glorious Fourth of July parade in Demorest.

The feature-length movie was filmed extensively in Demorest last year and premiered there in April.

Mayor Malcolm Hunnicutt says, “The movie production and premiere were huge for Demorest, and we’re delighted to invite the cast members to be the grand marshal in the parade. Some will ride in the Model T truck featured in the movie, and others will walk alongside the truck. Parade patrons will be given movie memorabilia.”

“Milltown Pride” DVDs were sold at the festival.

The Glorious Fourth of July parade, the state’s longest-running patriotic event, began at 11:00 a.m. along Historic Highway 441 in downtown Demorest. A street festival—featuring music, food, arts and crafts, a cakewalk, horseshoes, games for children, and outdoor fun—continued all day on July 4. At 9:30 p.m., a fireworks display concluded the free festivities. Fireworks were sponsored by Community Bank and Trust.
