The Fair Parade takes place the first Saturday morning of Fair Week at 9:30 am, starting at Capaha Park (Broadway and West End Blvd) and running to the fairgrounds. 

Marching bands, regional non-for-profits, carnival exhibitors, law enforcement... You can expect everything you think you will see and then add a few surprises. 

Bring a lawn chair and set up camp along Broadway or up the hill on N. Kingshighway and into Arena Park and the fairgrounds.

Watch the parade for little surprises, too!
