Register now for the Mayor’s Parade!

Registration is now live for the Mayor’s Parade!  The parade will be Saturday, August 4th at 10:00 am.

Start thinking about how you want to decorate for the parade contest!  We have Downtown Dollars to give to the contest winners in each category, so be creative!  This year’s theme is Traditions.  As always, walking and lightly tossing candy are allowed.

A registration table will be set up the morning of the parade at the Lions Field shelter, but if you pre-register before July 31st, it guarantees that your organization is properly announced when you pass the stage on Main Street.

The parade line up will take place on W Orange St. from the intersection of N Maple St. to the west.  Line up is between 8:45 am & 9:45 am, but walkers should arrive no later than 9:30 am.  There will be staff there to direct you.
