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.
