According to Bonnette, “Kids should be in the parking lot at Third and Butler
(streets) by 11:30. Costume judging starts at 11:40. Then at noon we have a
police car and fire truck escort that leads us down Third to Putnam, then on
Putnam to Muskingum Park. Kids do need to take part in the parade in order to
participate in the ‘party in the park.’”
The parade is intended for children age 18 and younger - no
pets and no politicians.
