Prepare to witness the whimsy of the Fred Meyer Junior Parade -- the nation’s oldest and largest children’s parade -- as it returns this Wednesday, June 7th, at 1:00 p.m. to the Hollywood District.
The parade will commence along Northeast Sandy Boulevard, captivating audiences with its dazzling display of youthful enthusiasm. To make this year's parade an even more delightful experience, families are invited to visit the Decoration Station, presented by Visit Seaside Oregon. Located at NE 52nd Avenue and Sandy Boulevard, near the parade's starting point, the Decoration Station offers an array of flowers, ribbons, and craft items for families to enhance and embellish their children's entries.
For the first time ever, families are invited to compete for the Family Fun Award. Winner will receive a wagonload of prizes, including a Fred Meyer Gift Card!
This year’s grand marshals – an iconic plumber brother duo whose names rhyme with “barrio” and “Fiji” are sure to paint the town red (and green) and bring an extra dose of excitement to the parade.
