Blaring bands and high-stepping dancers mingle with pirates, clowns and cool cars at the Festival parades, Saturday morning, Aug. 9.
The Kiddie Parade begins at 10:15 a.m. on North Bend Way, and is sponsored by Tour de Peaks and Scotts Dairy Freeze.
The Grand Parade follows, rain or shine, at 10:30 a.m. Line-up is along Cedar Falls Way, and entries proceed straight down North Bend Way, turning right onto Main Street, right again onto Second Street, then dispersing at the North Bend Elementary parking lot.
People on floats should not throw candy, but walkers can pass it out by hand.
Animal entries are welcome, but pet owners need to provide their own cleanup.
Each group can perform in front of the judges’ stand on Main Avenue for one minute.
The grand parade is sponsored by Snoqualmie Casino.
