The date is set (actually, it’s always set – the Third Saturday in May – Armed Forces Day!), so mark your calendars for May 21, 2016, and get ready for this iconic community event.
The Hazel Dell Parade of Bands, now in it’s 52nd year, is presented by the Hazel Dell/Salmon Creek Business Association. This years theme is “Celebrate Service”
The Hazel Dell Parade will be honoring those in our community that provide the services we depend on. The 2016 Grand Marshals will be The Streissguth Family, as our annual parade will especially focus on their contributions to the Parade, and in memory of former Fire Chief Dick Streissguth, who passed away in December. His family has participated in the Hazel Dell Parade of Bands for years, proudly chauffeuring the vintage fire equipment that was so dear to his heart.
The parade starts at 10:30, but there will be a Fun Run, sponsored by the Salmon Creek Kiwanis, to lead off the festivities beginning at 10:00 AM.
For those people and organizations looking to participate in the Parade, you will find Registration and Information packets on the HDSCBA website.
You can follow all the fun of the Parade on the Hazel Dell Parade facebook page, and watch for information on the upcoming release of the Hazel Dell Parade mobile app.
