The Grand Parade
The 43rd annual Frontier Days Grand Parade is an event not to be missed! The Grand Parade will fill the business district with floats, cowboys, kids and music! The parade begins at 10:30 Saturday morning and heads south on Cochran Rd from Lawrence Avenue down to Shepherd Street.
You will enjoy a variety of entries, including floats, horse drawn wagons, riders on horseback, high school bands, and cub scouts. The 2013 Frontier Days King, Queen, Prince and Princess will travel in mule drawn wagons and a special car will carry the 2013 Frontier Days Grand Marshal. You’ll see fire trucks, old tractors and antique cars among several new, fun and entertaining entries. The parade will feature many community groups, charities, local businesses, and civic leaders. The list is long and the fun unending.
Frontier Days is a celebration of Charlotte as a community and a celebration of the city’s unique tradition. We look forward to seeing you in here in our town and taking part, with you, in a weekend of fun, food, frivolity, and family entertainment. And the parade reflects this.
Entry is on a first come first serve basis with the parade closing when full or by July 25, 2013. For information, click here to contact Shari.
And a more recent tradition is, of course, Tunes Are Us hosting the parade. Join us as on Saturday morning as Jason Vanderstelt of Tunes Are Us DJ’s provides emcee commentary and hosts this year’s Grand Parade along Cochran Ave.
