Children from all over the community are encouraged to participate in this fun event, and entry is free for everyone. Using the same “Building Forever Friendships” theme as the Grand Parade, children can decorate their bikes, scooters, skateboards, wagons, or even themselves for judging.

Entry forms for both parades can be found on the festival’s website,, and must be submitted for the Children’s Parade by Opening Ceremonies on June 21st. 

The parade committee is looking forward to seeing everyone’s creative ideas come to life and continuing to build forever friendships within the community.
