The Cherry Festival Committee is pleased to announce that at the completion of the Festival Food Drive Thru, there will be a Porch Parade on Sunday, July 19, at 2 p.m.
Due to COVID-19, a full-scale parade would not align with Department of Health guidance. The porch parade option is how the parade can be brought to the community in the comfort and safety of their own homes.
The Cherry Festival Committee is thankful to all of the members of the community who have supported them during these difficult times.
The parade will feature all North East equipment. Candy will be thrown from the Chief’s vehicles only.
It is encouraged to find a spot along the route to enjoy the parade with family and friends.
For those who don’t live along the route, the North East High School parking lot, North East Middle School parking lot, or the Soccer Fields by the Bus Garage, will be a good option to see the parade and maintain social distancing.
