Homestead Festival Parade Saturday September 9th, 2017, 1:30 PM


Main St. Princeton

Homestead Festival ParadeCome and celebrate the 46th Bureau County Homestead Festival! We are proud to present this community event in cooperation with the lead couples and the parade committee. More than 7,000 people are expected to cluster Princeton's Main Street on Saturday, September 9th at 1:30PM.

Floats of all kinds are judged for creativity, decorations and crowd-engaging fun. Companies, businesses, Non-profits and other organizations will create their own floats and produce a spectacular event. You won't want to miss the marching bands, the old cars, and many other entries.

This is a highly anticipated event in the community. Parking in the area fills quickly, so spectators are urged to arrive early and stay late! Join us for the entire day!

For more information contact Debbie Kirley at debbie.kirley@edwardjones.com

Hard copies of the form will also be available at the Chamber Office and at Edward Jones.
