If the turnout for this year’s Independence Day parade is anything like last year, Johnny Garcia anticipates seeing a crowd. At least 1,500 people lined the parade route last year, said Garcia, the parade’s organizer and chaplain for Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 4265 in Craig. He wouldn’t be surprised if 1,000 or more spectators turn out when the parade begins at noon Wednesday. “I’m kind of expecting this to be a big deal,” he said.
