Without a doubt, the most popular Potato Days event for people from near and far is always the Potato Days Parade, attracting literally thousands of people from around the region. Each year over 170 units participate in the evening parade as a perfect way to cap off the day's activities. This year's parade is scheduled to begin Saturday evening at 5:30 p.m., rain or shine.

The parade route is approximately one and one-half miles in length and will make four 90 degree turns along the way. The route winds through the tree shaded canopy of the residential area before making it's way down Front Street. Spectators are encouraged to view the parade at any point along the parade route. Maps are available at the Information Booth.

For the safety of spectators, candy CAN NOT BE THROWN from parade units. Please bring two people to walk beside the units if you wish to give out candy.
