Maize Fall Festival


The Fall Festival Parade will be held on Saturday morning (October 14) starting at 10:00 AM. Parade location and route will be determined by current construction and will be set closer to the date of the Parade.

Spectators may bring chairs or blankets to sit on and may line either side of the parade route, but are asked to stay along the curb line or far enough back to allow adequate room for the parade to travel.

No candy or other items are to be thrown to the crowd from floats/walkers. Candy or items can be handed out or tossed underhanded but not thrown! Violators will be removed from the parade.

Parents, please watch out for your children. Be Safe, Enjoy the Parade and most importantly HAVE FUN!
