One of the greatest things about all holidays are the traditions and Rock Hill sure has a great one every Fourth of July! The Johnsonville Parade has been going on for at least forty years but to many people outside of the neighborhood are not familiar with it!
By July, some of the summer break patina can wear off. When the Johnson children asked their father what they could do one hot Independence Day, he suggested a parade around the neighborhood. What began as a small troupe of the Johnson children and their neighbors slowly evolved into a wonderful Rock Hill tradition. The parade has grown over the years to even include the campers at Camp Cherokee who travel down from King's Mountain State Park to walk, decked out in red, white, and blue.
