    Parades are a great way for Businesses and Organizations to showcase what they have to offer to a ton of people. We recommend putting a sign on you float/ vehicle and hand out information or if you are handing out candy attach your information to it. We thank all of our parade sponsors & entries on the Facebook, E-blast and on the Chamber page in the paper. 

    This is a great time for the community to come out and watch our fabulous parade. This takes place down Houghton Ave from South Valley Street to Eighth Street.
