6/7/2019 2:34:00 PM Riverfest parade route set for Saturday
Things are falling into place for the annual Riverfest Parade, including the route and parade entries.
Once again, the parade is set for 6 p.m. on Saturday. The route follows what has become a fairly traditional route down Fourth Avenue, starting at 16th Street and passing through the Square's west side before turning east onto Eighth Street. The route goes one block before heading back to the south on Third Avenue, ending at Lutheran Church of Our Savior.
This year's parade will lean heavily on the American Legion and patriotism, following the theme "Celebrating 100 years of the American Legion." Windom's American Legion Post 206 was formed in 1919.
Parade contest awards will be presented to: the top marching band, drumline and drum & bugle corp. Top float awards are: best theme, best commercial and best non-profit.
