As a kid, some of my fondest memories were of me sitting with my family and friends on the hot pavement waiting for a summer parade. Candy, clowns, neighbors, and floats lined the streets…and I didn’t want to miss a second of it! We are looking to create that same feeling this year at the Parker Days Parade. The parade is held on Saturday, June 14 at 10 a.m.
This year we are looking for that home town feeling….and we are well on our way. A few of the current entrants in this year’s parade includes 2 princesses, clubs and organizations from Ponderosa High School, Strongman Competition competitors showing us their muscles, Golden Retriever Rescue of the Rockies dogs walking, Cub Scouts riding their decorated bikes, Vintage Fire Truck, a patriotic float, University of Parker Marching Band, and classic cars.
We are still accepting applications for the parade. Our ideal candidates are those who will emulate the sense of our family oriented community festival, however everyone is welcome.
Floats are a major component of any parade. Decorate the back of a flat bed truck or a trailer you can tow behind your car; get creative and showcase what you have to offer. Performers of all types also make a great impression in a parade. Marching bands, drill and dance teams, baton and fire twirlers, clowns, jugglers and cheerleaders are just a few. If you have a special talent or interest that you know is unique and you would like to present it to the public, the parade offers a great stage to do so.
