Entries of all kinds are needed for the parade at Wyaconda's Fall Festival on Saturday, Sept. 7. Line-up for the parade begins at 11:30 a.m. at the old Wyaconda School parking lot area. The parade will begin at 1:00 p.m. It will proceed south down Main Street and then turn onto Jefferson Street.
Prize ribbons will be given out in several categories, and everyone is encouraged to walk, bike, ride, or drive in the parade. Kids are invited to decorate bikes or wagons or walk with a group. Classic, antique, and new cars, trucks, tractors, and motorcycles are welcome. Fire departments, community groups, churches, businesses, and politicians can enter floats, vehicles, or walking units.
