Red Wagon Parade Taking Place this Saturday

Calling all wagons! Little red wagons that is.

The Knox County Visioning Group invites you to their first, Red Wagon Parade!  It will take place during Adventure Days on April 28, 2012 at 5:00 p.m. This year’s parade theme is Western Adventure.

The parade is open to all who would chose to decorate a standard four wheel wagon, limited in overall size to 48 inches long and 28 inches wide and 3 feet high from the ground level, including all decoration, but not including the pull handle. All decorations must be attached securely.  Parade surfaces may include rolling over lumps and bumps.

Wagons must be pulled by a single person, although children may have adult assistance. Entrants should practice walking with their wagons fully decorated to avoid any embarrassment or disqualification at the time of the parade. The parade route will be short (no longer than 1000 feet) and inside the Munday Events Center.

There will be three categories for the best-decorated wagon: commercial (for business entries), youth – ages 14 and under, and adult – ages 15 and above. Ribbons will be awarded to the top three placers in each category. No live animals are allowed in the parade or the wagon.

Wagons should be at the MEC by 3:00 pm on April 28, 2012, for display. Then, participants should be ready to fall into place in front of the MEC at 4:30 pm to get lined up find their location in the group. The parade begins at 5 pm.

Entry forms are available by clicking here by calling the office.  The cost to participate is $5 per entry. Deadline for entry receipt is April 28th at 3:00 p.m. For more information, call 940-459-4121.
