celebration on Friday, Sept. 8 for 2017. The parade kicks-off from State and Willow at 6 pm. Our theme: Mushrooms on Parade!

The parade is a celebration of our community and the mushroom industry. All are invited to participate. The Festival invites local organizations to march as a group or enter a float. Bands — on floats or marching– are parade favorites. Antique cars, equestrian groups and businesses are encouraged to be a part of the parade.

Walking Units
We are continuing to make improvements in staging the parade. This year we will stage all

Race Street will be one way (turn left on State Street — no entrance from Cypress Street). The right lane will be for  dropping off parade participants. The left lane will allow traffic to move through.
