July 4th Main Parade

 

This Main Parade doesn't have 'kids' in the title, but you certainly wouldn't know that from the amount of candy that's handed/tossed out by our participants!

Here's what you need to know:

Participants: All taking part in the Main Parade must register (see attached form). Check-in day-of at the 76th and Hwy G intersection where you'll receive your entry number that corresponds to the number painted on the street -- no trading numbers as this is needed for our parade announcer! Check in begins at 10AM with judging before the parade between Noon and 1:00PM. Please note the road closures, you'll need to enter from the north (not from hwy K). Thank you for making this day special for so many!!!

Route: The entire route is along 76th Street working from north to south. It'll begin at the Raymond Town Hall and finish at Raymond Elementary School. Checkout the Map.

Rules: Keep it moving! Getting to see the sites and sounds of a parade is magical, even for the young-at-heart. However, did you know that many participants are also sharing their skills/rides at neighboring community parades? That's why as an observer we need to keep the streets cleared, and as a participant not stop for a quick chat with a long time friend. When we stay on schedule, it helps ensure that our performers want to join us in celebrating again next year.

Have fun!
