The Annual Cy Young Days Festival Parade will be held Saturday June 25, 2016 at 6:00 PM, with line-up beginning at 5 and we would like to invite you to participate. Our Grand Parade Marshall will be Cy Young Award winner, Doug Drabek.

The winners will be selected before the Parade moves and awards will be presented on Main St. during the Parade.
$20 cash prizes will be awarded in the following categories:
Best Decorated Wagon Best Appearing Float
Most Team Spirit Best Decorated Bicycle
Best Appearing Antique or Classic Vehicle Best Decorated Team Truck
Best Appearing Walking Unit Best Equestrian Unit
Best Commercial Entry Presidents Award
The Festival Parade will start on Oak Street in the High School area. It will go North on River to Church St. It will travel East on Church to College Street and North on College to Main Street. They will then go West on Main to Goodrich where they can disband. For more information or to enter the parade, contact Debbie Rehard at 740 492-0326.

In all cases the Judge’s choices are final! Only pre registered units will be eligible for prizes.
On the unlikely chance that foul weather will hit the area during our upcoming Festival, we have made some totally unneeded plans.
