people want to see you at the parade!
Each year the Barnesville Potato Days Festival
attracts over 20,000 people from across the region, state and nation.
One of the highlights is always the parade, with upwards of 170
units! All along the parade route thousands of people pack the
sidewalks and street ... here’s your
chance to get in on the action.
To insure your position in the parade,
please complete this parade registration form [download in pdf] and return
it as soon as possible. Response is appreciated prior to August 15th.
We will mail to confirm your application ONE
WEEK BEFORE THE PARADE and include a parade route map, line-up
info, directions to the line-up area and our parade rules, one
of which is that nothing may be thrown from vehicles, but candy
and other items may be walked along the parade route.
With a full
day of activities scheduled throughout Saturday, we invite you
to arrive early to take in the fun and festivities starting with
a Potato Pancake Breakfast at 7:00 AM and wrapping up with a Street
Dance beginning at 9:00 PM!
If you have any questions, please contact
the Potato Days Office at (800) 525-4901.
