The Town of Walkersville, in celebration of its 125th Anniversary, and the Walkersville Volunteer Fire Company are proud to announce that once again we will be having a parade this year to coincide with the annual carnival. The parade will take place on Tuesday, July 4th and it will begin promptly at 4pm. The rain date for the parade will be Wednesday, July 5th at 6:30 pm.

We would like to extend an invitation for you to participate in this year’s parade. The parade will line up on Glade Road and move from the intersection of E. Pennsylvania Ave and Glade Road. The parade will continue to the east end of Frederick Street (by Pizza Hut) and through the Town to the Fire Company's Carnival.

We hope that your non-profit organization, church group, schools, business, civic organization, or any other private group would like to participate in this Town of Walkersville Parade and become part of its celebration for a Town that we love.

There are different categories with money prizes that will reward your participation. One of those is three prizes for the best appearing Non-Profit Organization Floats and two prizes for best appearing Commercial Floats. You may use the 125th Anniversary theme or you can use your own theme to promote your group.

We will also award thirteen (13) Special Monetary Awards to Non-Profit Organizations or Individuals that make a good showing and are a crowd favorite. This can be marching groups, antique cars, trucks, and tractors, horse and buggies, civic groups, school groups, etc.

We would request that you send, phone or email us your definite or possibility of entry as soon as possible so that the Parade Committee can follow up with you in about a month to verify. You can also send, phone or email any questions to the addresses included on the attached entry form.

We ask for your strong consideration and attention to show your appreciation to the Town of Walkersville for their 125th Anniversary Parade. Thank You.
