World’s Biggest Fish Fry continues with annual Grand Parade

PARIS, Tenn. — The World’s Biggest Fish Fry in Henry County continued Friday with its Grand Parade.

“Fish fry is definitely one of those special events we’re very lucky to have once a year,” parade attendee Walker Purdon said.

Hundreds of people lined the streets Friday as the fish fry celebration continued. “Oh, I love it! I come every year,” Carla Parker said.

One young child, John Dinwiddie, said he was looking forward to the parade. “I only been to the parade a few times, and I wanted to come again,” he said.

From pageant princesses to marching bands and hometown mascots, there’s something for everyone.

Many attendees said seeing old friends and meeting new ones is what makes the event so special.

“It’s just a homecoming,” Traci Barker said. “Everybody comes in from all over the place just to be together.”

Pravice Jamison brought his whole family. “It’s pretty outside, the atmosphere is good, everything about this is really nice, and I’ve really loved it,” he said.

If you haven’t had a chance to experience the World’s Biggest Fish Fry, events will wrap up at 9 p.m. Friday, and more all-you-can-eat fish will be available at 11 a.m. Saturday.
