  The yearly Soldiers Reunion event held in Newton NC will start at 5:00 pm on August 21, 2014.  This is the most popular event of the year.  Chairs actually begin to line the sides of Main Avenue and College Avenue a day or two before the parade as local residents seek a good seat.  Coordinated by the Newton Merchants Association and American Legion Post #16, the annual Soldiers Reunion celebration is believed to be the longest-running patriotic celebration not based on a holiday.   Soldiers Reunion is actually a week-long event, beginning on Sunday with the "Cruisin' & Car Show," with the Gospel Music Night on Monday at 7:30 p.m., Beach Music Night on Tuesday at 7:30 p.m., Street Dance on Wednesday at 7:30 p.m., and Reunion Day is of course Thursday.
