The youth taking part in spring sports are going to celebrate opening day this coming weekend – weather permitting – and a parade is scheduled to ring in the season.
Cedartown Youth Baseball, along with Recreation Softball and soccer teams will all gather at Bert Wood Youth and Athletic Complex at the conclusion of the parade for opening ceremonies.
The parade will begin at 9 a.m. in front of the First Baptist Church on College Street, then travel down West Jule Peek Avenue to Lynton Drive and begin their season afterward.
Rockmart baseball and softball players opened their year on March 13 without any fanfare.
Organizers ask people continue to social distance and follow COVID-19 protocols along the parade route on Saturday.
