2. The Kahite 4th of July Parade
The Kahite 4th of July Parade has been ongoing for the last ten years, growing by leaps and bounds. This parade was the idea of two couples from Tellico Village’s Kahite neighborhood — Nelson & Linda Ledbetter and Dick & Marvella Mullen.
The idea was quite simple — decorate something (car, golf cart, yourself, etc.) and parade it in the neighborhood during the 4th of July celebrations to bring some family fun to the festivities.
The Kahite 4th of July Parade has since grown into an annual tradition for residents of Tellico Village. It features marching units, an honor guard featuring veterans representing all the military branches, clowns, and a fireworks celebration. Neighbors get to decorate things like golf carts, motorbikes, vehicles, and pretty much anything to showcase their creativity.

There is plenty of fun at the Tellico Village Yacht Club on Independence Day. The Yacht Club was established in 1983 and has since provided residents and visitors alike with fabulous views of the lake and mountains while offering extraordinary events.
As is traditionally the case, you can look forward to music and fireworks on the 4th of July. There will be music by The Chessmen and great food. Vintage cars will also be on display to spice up the party. Tickets will cost $10, inclusive of a house adult beverage.
