About the Event

Meet the creators and technicians behind the 2018 Days of ’47 Parade floats and see how it all comes together — even before the Parade rolls! Vote for your favorite float and, after the Preview Party ballots are counted, watch the banners on July 24th to see if your favorite float won the “People’s Choice” or the “Children’s Choice” award. Here’s another highlight — the Youth Parade’s winning float will be included in the Parade on July 24th AND all Youth Parade floats are invited to participate in the Float Preview Party. They are a happy feature at the Preview Party and folks want to vote for them! Sorry — they will not win the Children’s Choice or People’s Choice awards! But you’ll want to see them anyway.

Visit South Towne Expo Center on July 16 and 17, 2018, to preview many of the Parade floats and join the excitement as Parade day nears. The party begins at 11:00 a.m. and ends at 9:00 p.m. on both days. The South Towne Expo Center has plenty of parking and TRAX is a short distance away.

Also enjoy bands, clowns, entertainment and much more. Free admission.
