About: If you love a good parade, this is the festival for you. At 2pm on Saturday, the parade is chocked full of groups, musicians, comedy troups, and bands. It’s one of my favorites along side the L5P Halloween Parade. The festival is free and on top of the parade, there is a vibrant artist market and food!
