The parade will start at the corner of 15th and Court St. (new location this year) in the Court-Chemeketa Historic District. The parade proceeds up Court St. to 20th, then through McRae Park, down Chemeketa St. to 15th, finally returning to Court St.
Court-Chemeketa neighbors, friends and family—everyone is invited to participate, watch and cheer!
Decorate your bikes, scooters, wagons, and strollers, and wear your best red, white and blue outfit. Pets are welcome, though dogs should be leased. If you're riding a bike, don't forget your helmet and safety gear.
