Mickey McCamish - a retired Navy captain - is the military co-chairman of this year’s parade.


Mickey is also executive director of Friends of the Festival, which just announced the Riverfront Nights summer concert series will return on June 5th to Ross’ Landing in downtown Chattanooga - with plans for a smaller Riverbend Festival sometime in the fall.
