This year’s theme for the 2017 Hazel Dell Parade of Bands is “Follow Your Dreams.” The Parade date is set – Saturday, May 20 – and as previously announced, our Grand Marshal is Alicia Cooper, a Skyview High School graduate, Miss Clark County, Miss Washington, and third runner-up in the Miss America contest. Congratulations to Brad and Shelly for making this happen, the earliest parade theme in recent memory.
It’s never too early to start planning the decorations for your entry and to consider adding a parade sponsorship to your 2017 budget. It is our sponsors who help make the Parade such a wonderful success every year! As you plan your 2017 operating budget, please consider supporting our parade. It is a wonderful way to put your name and business out in front of the thousands of spectators and CVTV viewers, too. Please connect with Tony Ruestig from TwinStar Credit Union about sponsorship levels. Thank you.
Parade committee meetings will be held on the third Wednesdays of January, February, March, and April from 12:00-1:00 at the Clark Regional Wastewater District offices, 8000 NE 52nd Court. The final pre-Parade meeting is held on Thursday, May 18, at Clark County Fire District 6 at 3:00 p.m. Please direct any general parade questions to the Parade co-chairs, Shelly Palmer and Brad Lothspeich.
