Chattahoochee Main Street has announced that it will be hosting an event to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the dedication of the historic Victory Bridge.
In use for over 70 years, Victory Bridge was a drawbridge which spanned the Apalachicola River.
It was named in commemoration of the Allied victory in World War I.
The celebration will occur on Wednesday, July 20 at River Landing Park and will begin at noon.
The event organizers are seeking to recreate the original dedication ceremony, which took place on July 20, 1922.
A presentation by historian Dale Cox is planned, along with public speakers, an exhibit showcasing historical documents and photos, a parade featuring antique vehicles, and refreshments.
Chattahoochee Main Street will provide more details as the event approaches, so be sure to check them out on Facebook.
