Warroad Reverse Parade Event
July 4 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Warroad Area Women of Today is proud to announce that we will be celebrating the 4th of July with a reverse version of the parade! The theme is “Happy Birthday America! ”
However, due to everything going on we are changing it up a bit to ensure that we are following state guidelines on social distancing. Instead of everyone gathering on the streets to watch the parade we would ask anyone that would like to participate to decorate their yard, business or a float. Floats may be left in the old casino parking lot by the point, on the 4th of July! Starting at 10am (No earlier please).
Starting at 1pm, people can drive around Warroad to look at the different businesses, yards, and floats and then vote for their favorite, either via the Warroad Area Women of Today’s Facebook page by taking a picture or selfie of your choice and posting with the hashtag #wawt, or by paper ballot voting at our station we will have set up at the Old Lakeview parking lot. By voting you will have your name entered into a drawing for 4 possible prize baskets!
Warroad Area Women of Today will then pick the annual winner for this years best float, yard, & business based on the votes of the local community!
We are asking that NO items or candy be given out from floats. If you would like to donate candy you would have purchased for your float or have a promotional item you want to contribute to the goodie bags, items can be dropped off at the T-Shirt Barrel or The Phoenix Restaurant.
Treat bags for kids will be handed out at our ballot station, we have a limited number of bags so they will be handed out in a first come first serve bases. Please feel free to stop by and pick up a treat bag for each of your children between 1pm and 4pm on the 4th of July, while supplies last!
As always we are looking forward to seeing all the creativity that our community has to offer and show our American Pride even during these trying times! More information to come please check our Facebook page for updates.
