This year’s Grand Marshal will be Ollie Bryson, a patriarch of the Lula community. The route will follow the old railroad tracks in downtown Lula.

Following the conclusion of the Railroad Days parade, which will include a variety of floats and other entries, attendees are invited back to the park for a full day of festival activities.

The family-friendly event will include food, vendors, crafts and live entertainment.

According to event organizers, a variety of performers will grace the main stage throughout the day.

Attendees can anticipate being dazzled by dance acts, as well as bluegrass, country, rock and gospel bands and singers.
