Vashon Loves a Parade!
VASHON GRAND PARADE - SPONSORED BY JOHN L. SCOTT REAL ESTATE
I Love A Parade! The Children’s Parade clears the path for the Grand Parade, setting the mood for frivolity. Smiling painted faces pedaling scooters and tricycles decorated with ribbons and streamers represent local pre-schools and Island communities. We are proud to have the National Color Guard and our Vashon Island Veterans at the head of the Grand parade. Traditionally, a “home town” event, the Grand Parade gives locals the chance to strut their stuff! Some long time favorites include the Rhythm Joy Samba Dancers, the Thriftway Shopping Cart Drill Team, the Vashon Health Center Marching Sphygmo Manometers, and of course our beloved Antique Tractors!
The Parade begins at 11 am on Saturday, July 20th! Some of the best viewing can be found nouth of Bank Road and in front of our Beer Garden located right across the street from the library. Booths are open at 10:00 am for shopping prior to the parade.
Parade participants will gather at PSE and the Children’s parade lines up at the Methodist Church. This year, in an effort to keep our children safe, all participants in the Children’s parade must be accompanied by a parent or an adult and sign in prior to the start of the event.
See you there!
