The Grand Parade is one of the Festival's oldest events. Starting at the intersection of West State Street and Fernwood, the Grand Parade travels east on State Street and then North on Union Ave. to the intersection of Broadway. The parade averages around 100-130 units every year including marching bands from area high schools, floats and community organizations.
