The official Memory Days 2022 Parade Lineup...

BUT FIRST we need to inform everyone of the Parade instructions:

Lineup is at 12 Noon (or earlier if possible) at Estep's Corner (618 W. Main Street). Entering the staging area from the west US 60 will point you in the right direction. South side of road will be Yellow Numbered Tags (single vehicle & small entries), North side of the road will be Orange numbered tags (Floats & Larger groups). After parade starts @ 1:00 PM you will need to maintain a slow and steady pace, avoid large gaps between entries ( to discourage children from crossing the street), Please do not throw candy or any other items from your float or vehicle instead hand out to parade watchers on sidewalks (to discourage kids from darting out in front of vehicles. Parade will end at corner of Main and Robert & Mary (Prichard School). You may pick up parade participants at the school or the Paul Rogers' lot. WHEW! Ok, here's the lineup...
