With the Bainbridge High School Basketball Cheerleader leading the way the parade got under way. This was the American Disabilities Act Celebration hosted by BAIN. Down Shotwell Street they went, walking, riding and driving their wheelchairs.

The March continued on to the Bainbridge High School Cafeteria but that was only the beginning. Some who chose not to join in the parade arrived and the fun and activities began. There were obstacle courses and games that let those without disabilities understand what it meant to deal with everyday life with one.

The program featured McKenna Locke, Miss Georgia Junior Pre-Teen singing the National Anthem.
