GW Eagles take the court with championship trophy.

A parade will be held Sunday honoring local champions, including George Washington High School’s 2019 basketball team and other achieving local schools.

The City of Champions and Community Celebration parade will be held from 1 to 3 p.m., with lineup beginning at Holbrook and Main streets at noon. The parade will start there and end at Main and Craghead streets and Memorial Drive, said organizer Penny Bryant.

The event also will honor Galileo Magnet High School, Bonner Middle School, Averett University, NASCAR legends and other past and current champions.

Danville native and retired pro basketball player Johnny Newman will sign autographs at an event after the parade, Bryant said. The post-parade event will be held at Something Special Restaurant and Lounge at 401 S. Ridge St., she said.

The events are free and open to the public.
