The parade began at Tazewell High School, and ended with a ceremony at the Veteran’s Memorial on Main Street in Tazewell. Over 160 Veterans were in attendance. A meal was served for the Veterans at the Main Street Methodist Church fellowship hall, on the corner of Main Street.

All area Veteran’s were invited to participate in the parade and meal. Transportation was provided to any Veteran which is not able to walk the parade route. This year the Veterans Parade Committee teamed up with the USMC Toys for Tots Campaign and asked all parade onlookers to bring a a toy and help provide a tangible sign of hope to economically disadvantaged children at Christmas. Toy collection spots were strategically placed throughout the parade route, to collect donations.

Concert Series – Beach Nite Band


On Saturday, July 6, 2013, the Beach Nite Band performed as part of the Main Street Concert Series. Their Carolina beach music tradition includes soul, R&B, disco, blues, boogie and memorable oldies songs. Along with their versions of Carolina beach music favorites, they mix in selected pop, party and even a few country music titles. For entertaining music spiced up with humor and variety, The Beach Nite Band delivers. All three Beach Nite Band performers, as well as their sound engineer, are privileged to have been long time members of The Collegians. While neither they nor anyone else could replace The Collegians, they hope to honor and extend the musical and entertainment traditions forged by this outstanding band.

Concert Series – Steele Cookin’

On June 29, 2013, Steele Cookin’ performed as part of the Summer Concert Series in Tazewell.This band is centered around the guitar of Teddy Steele whose style reflects some of his many influences such as Billy Gibbons and Eric Clapton. Steele knows when to slow it down and when to burn the house down. He has been a well-known figure in the blues scene of Southwest Virginia and has also played The White Mountain Boogie and Blues Fest as well as the Cincinnati Blues fest with Deborah Coleman and Albert Cummings. Teddy is accompanied by vocalist Rebecca Tinsley whose style and influences are among Bonnie Raitt and Susan Tedeschi. Along with the talented rhythm section of George Bowen (sax, slide guitar, harmonica), Tom Pridgen (drums) and Ashley Steele (bass) you have a band that you will want to see time and time again.
