This year’s annual Genoa Homecoming Grand Parade will be on Friday, June 3rd at 6:30 pm. There will be a new location this year for the parade line up, St. John’s Church. Registration begins at 4:30 pm at 13th and Washington Street (St John’s Church). The theme of this year’s parade is “On Broadway.”
Please design your floats and entries with themes from “The Great White Way”. You can have a theater marquee, a musical production or playbills adorning your parade entry. With the fireworks on Saturday, our Grand Parade is always one of the highlights of our 3-day event.
If you are dropping off marchers in the parade, please approach registration from 13th Street, turn left onto Washington, drop off your marcher and continue on Washington Street to your parking spot or final destination. There will be no parking at St. John’s. Please note that all marchers need to be at the parade grounds by 6pm. You are welcome to pick your marcher back up at St. John’s at the conclusion of the parade.
Also new this year is the parade route. We will begin the parade at the corner of 12th and Main and end the parade at St. John’s Church. We hope to see you there!
