Ladies, Gentlemen, Clubs, Organizations, Businesses, & Others:
The Chamber would like to invite you to participate in our annual summer parade on Friday July 9th at 6:30 pm! We are seeking float, truck, car, and ATV/Golf Cart entries. Participants must be at least 17 years old to drive a motorized entry and no water balloons please. Other entries like bands, clubs, horses, and marching units are also welcome! The Chamber offers prize money in two different categories: floats and ATV/Golf Carts. Float winners receive $125 for 1st place, $100 for 2nd, $75 for 3rd, and $50 for 4th. ATV/Golf Cart payouts are $30 for 1st, $20 for 2nd, and $10 for 3rd.
The theme this year is “Honoring Hometown Heroes.” Pay tribute to those who serve others by decorating and displaying a float or other entry in their honor.
Judging of entries will be done between 5:15 and 5:45 pm at Flint Hills Beverage. Participants will then proceed to line up at the west end of Market Street near BP Station and Bullseye Liquor. Parade line up/parking numbers will not be assigned. Click here for full 2021 parade information.
This year’s parade will begin promptly at 6:30 pm.
The parade is always an annual highlight of the summer. Thank you to all the businesses, organizations, clubs, schools and individuals in this area that have supported it. We look forward to all the parade entries and hope spectators will enjoy another memorable, safe, and fun event.
