WILD WEST FESTIVAL PARADE: HOMETOWN HEROES
This year’s theme, Hometown Heroes, is in honor of all First Responders, including all doctors, nurses, dispatchers, police, fire, and military personnel.
We want this parade to be about you! We invite you to the front of our parade to serve as our Grand Marshalls! You may choose to walk or ride on a float so that our community can recognize and thank you for the dedication you have shown to our families and loved ones!
If you would like to participate, there is no need to register! Just wear your uniform and arrive at the starting point at 9:45!
If you would like to create a float for the parade, register below! Grab your crew, get your imaginations flowing, and bring your creativity and craftsmanship to life!
WILD WEST FESTIVAL 5K
Get your day started early with the traditional WWF 5K starting at 8:00 am.
Though a traditional race, there is a new course this year! If you don't want to begin your race with the masses, consider taking advantage of staggered start times. As long as you complete your race by 9:00, you are eligible for awards!
