We are asking, that if you are planning to be in the parade to let us know by June 30 This is not required but would be helpful and greatly appreciated.  Please let us know the total length of your float, including the vehicle pulling or pushing the float. This will help us with preparing the parade lineup

Please note the time change for this year’s parade. The parade time will now be 4:00 p.m. The purpose of the new parade schedule is to allow parade goers the opportunity to enjoy their day with friends, family, or at other events at Freedom Fest before attending the parade, which will now be held during a cooler part of the day.
