Parade Entry Form

We are excited to start gearing up for the 2019 IHD parade. We have a few changes and exciting additions to let you know about for this year’s parade so please read carefully!

To ensure that everyone is able to enjoy the parade, we will be working with Gemini Studios in Fairmont to record and broadcast this year’s parade. As part of this, we are working on lining up an announcer to announce each unit as it passes through downtown Fairmont. We are asking each unit to submit a short statement about your business, church, club, or organization as is applicable for the announcer to share with our audience. If you are interested in a copy of the parade on video, we will have these available for a nominal cost, that will depend on the production cost. The videos will be shared with various care facilities around the area and throughout greater Minnesota. This will be a great opportunity for you to share your organization.

The parade will be held on Saturday June 8, 2019 at 6:00 PM. Line-up will begin at 5:00 PM along Lake Avenue (between Heritage Acres and the Armory). Lineup assignments for the parade will be sent to each unit about 1 week prior to the parade.

This year we will be celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Fairmont American Legion. In honor of this milestone we are encouraging our participants to decorate your entry in red, white and blue, but do not let this stop you from using your imagination to make it unique and as exciting as you want.

We also ask that you keep your unit close to the units in front to ensure the parade moves along smoothly. For the safety of our spectators, please do not throw candy or items onto the street, these may be handed out from your parade unit.

Registration for the parade closed on June 1, 2019! Check back for the 2020 parade information coming out soon!
