Everyone loves a parade

The 2019 Jasper County Fair parade will begin at 6:30 p.m. July 22 in Colfax. All division entries are needed. Everyone is welcome to participate.

Lineup will begin at 4:30 p.m. 4-H and FFA floats will line up on Broadway Street, south of the Colfax-Mingo Elementary School. 

Open division floats are to line up on Broadway Street, southwest of the elementary school.

Antique cars should line up on Spring Street and tractors line up on Locust Street, south of Broadway Street.

All horses should unload at Kelly Field in the parking lot, north of Highway 6 on Kelly Street. There will be no parking on West Street, as this is the alternate traffic route.

For safety reasons, no candy or other items are to be thrown from any unit in the parade. If you wish to distribute candy or other items, you may have people walking alongside the street handing out the items. No paper pamphlets or brochures of any kind are to be handed out during the parade, due to the litter these cause.

If there are any questions, contact Christy Lindsay at 515-210-0084.
