Grand Parade Invite

It’s not to early to plan for the annual Labor Day Oatmeal Festival Grand Parade. We are so excited, can you believe it’s our 45th year! Everybody loves a parade and what is better than watching a parade, it’s being in the parade!

The committee is currently accepting application for Grand Parade participants. ENTRIES MUST BE OF A CREATIVE NATURE: Our goal is to have the parade be a fun and entertaining activity for spectators and participants. What a better way to show your pride in our community by participating in the parade. If you have a business, community organization, school organization, neighborhood group, friends, family, or whatever gather them together and have fun. You can enter your group in for judging, maybe you can win – Best Theme Design; Judges Choice or Mayors Choice.

The parade will be on Saturday, September 3rd at 10:30 am with the parade route proceeding east on W. Vaughan St through downtown ending at East Street. Participants line-up start time to be judged is between 8:00 am – 9:00 am. The judging will take place at 9:15 am with awards at 10:00 am. Those that do not want to be judged the line-up start time is at 9:30 am.

Last year’s parade was a great success. And we need you to help us make our 45th year even bigger and better than last year!
