All parade entries will stage at the Centerburg Church of Christ, 3830 Columbus Road, Centerburg. Judging is from 8:00-9:30 am. All entries for judging must check in at the registration desk no later than 9:00 am to pick up their judging number. We ask that all floats and single vehicles proceed to your designated row and park first. A person will be present to direct you to the proper row for your category. Once parked, one person needs to come to the registration table. Pre-registration is encouraged. Pre-registered participants also need to check in to receive a number if they want to be judged. If you do not want to be judged, come to the table anyway to register if you haven't and state that you do not wish to be judged. There is no charge to enter.
All animals will be staged on the HS parking lot, not on the grass behind the lot. Look for direction signs. Horse trailers are to go to the staging area by way of the MS/HS entrance, not the Church of Christ entrance. Prepare for judging ASAP. All animal units will line up at 10:00 am on the grass between the church and school for the parade. All other entries will stage in the church parking lot and be prepared to stop for row staging instructions.
Winners will receive a ribbon before the parade and a plaque at the park after the opening ceremony.
New this year the parade will be directed by a Festival member to turn into Fred Wade's field or to continue to the park. Those being directed into the park will be the band, marshal float, calliope, Quarters in the Sand, the tractors that will be displayed in the park throughout the weekend and a few others.  The rest will be directed into Fred Wade's field. All parade entries will follow the direction of the Festival member directing this traffic.
Once the units are in the field, return to the entrance and go back out to Rte 3 and turn whichever direction needed. For those units going south on Rte 3, turn right at the Marathon Station and stay on that street until you come to Clayton St and turn right. Travel down Clayton until you come to Houck St and turn left and continue to it's end. You can only go left to Rte 3, then turn right and continue on to the MS/HS parking lot.
We hope you can attend and make this year's parade an outstanding success as was last year's. Please mail your registration form no later than September 10th. Mail to the address below. If this isn't possible please come anyway and bring the form. NO FORMS WILL BE MAILED STARTING THIS YEAR.
