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.
Potato Days Parade is sponsored by StoneRidge Software
